Solution: Suppose that b 1 T ( w 1 ) + ยทยทยท + b n T ( w n ) = , 1 for some elements b 1 ,...,b n of the ๏ฌeld. Then T ( b 1 w 1 + ยทยทยท + b n w n ) = , so b 1 w 1 + ยทยทยท + b n w n โ N ( T ) . But then b 1 w 1 + ยทยทยท + b n w n = a 1 u 1 + ยทยทยท + a m u m , for some choice of scalars a 1 ,...,a m , since ( u 1 ,..., u m ) is a basis for N ( T ). Thus a 1 u 1 + ยทยทยท + a m u mb 1 w 1ยทยทยทb n w n = . Since the list ( u 1 ,..., u m , w 1 ,..., w n ) is linearly independent, a 1 = ยทยทยท = a m = b 1 = ยทยทยท = b n = 0 . From this we conclude that b 1 = ยทยทยท = b n = 0 , and thus ( T ( w 1 ) ,...,T ( w n )) is linearly independent. 2...
