What is T (8 , 11). Proof. Note that the set { (1 , 1) , (2 , 3) } is linearly independent and since dim R 2 = 2, it is also a basis of R 2 . Thus by Theorem 2.6, there is such linear transformation T . Now consider (8 , 11) = 2(1 , 1) + 3(2 , 3) , and so T (8 , 11) = T (2(1 , 1) + 3(2 , 3)) = 2 T (1 , 1) + 3 T (2 , 3) = 2(1 , , 2) + 3(1 , 1 , 4) = (5 , 3 , 16) . #14: Let T : V → W be linear. (a) Prove that T is onetoone if and only if T carries linearly indepen dent subsets of V into linearly independent subsets of W . (b) Suppose that T is onetoone and that S is a subset of V . Prove that S is linearly independent if and only if T ( S ) is linearly independent. (c) Suppose β = { v 1 ,v 2 ,...,v n } is a basis for V and T is onetoone and onto. Prove that T ( β ) = { T ( v 1 ) ,T ( v 2 ) ,...,T ( v n ) } is a basis for W . Proof. (a) (= ⇒ ) Assume T is onetoone. Let S = { v 1 ,v 2 ,...,v n } ⊆ V be linearly independent. We must show that T ( S ) = { T ( v 1 ) ,T ( v 2 ) ,...,T ( v n ) } is linearly independent. So assume a 1 T ( v 1 ) + a 2 T ( v 2 ) + ··· + a n T ( v n ) = 0 ....
