Unformatted text preview: Sample questions for Prelim 2 Math 2940 Fall 2009 This represents relevant questions that have appeared on previous prelims and finals. The overall length is not representative of a single prelim. 1. Let T : R 3 → P 4 be defined by T a b c = p ( x ) = ( a- 2 b +3 c )+(3 a +2 b + c ) x +( a +2 b- c ) x 2 +( a + c ) x 4 (a) Find the dimension and a basis for im( T ). (b) Find the coordinates of the polynomial p ( x ) above in terms of your basis for im( T ). (c) Find the dimension and a basis for ker( T ). 2. In each of the following, you are given a linear space V and a subset W ⊆ V . Decide whether W is a subspace of V , and prove your answer is correct. (a) V is the space R 2 × 2 of all 2 × 2 matrices, and W is the set of 2 × 2 matrices A such that A 2 = A . (b) V is the space of differentiable functions, and W is the set of those differentiable functions that satisfy f (3) = 0....
