Solution : We need to find the image of the coordinate vectors in each case. For the reflection T , the reflection of (1 , 0) is (1 , 0) again, as this point lies on the axis of reflection. The reflection of (0 , 1) is (0 , 1), so finally we get T = 1 1 . As for S , we use the formula for an anticlockwise rotation from the notes (it may be useful to simply memorize the formula). This gives S = cos( θ ) sin( θ ) sin( θ ) cos( θ ) , with θ = 30 degrees (since we are rotating clock wise). b) Find matrices representing ST and TS . Solution : This is a direct computation; ST = cos( θ ) sin( θ ) sin( θ ) cos( θ ) , while TS = cos( θ ) sin( θ ) sin( θ ) cos( θ ) . Problem 2: Suppose T is a linear transformation from R 2 to R 3 , given by the matrix 1 1 1 2 . If L is a line in R 2 , passing through the point (1 , 1) and in the direction of the vector ~v = (1 , 2 , 1), then find the image of the line L under T . (Note: the vectors in this problem and the problem below have been written as row vectors to save space.) Solution : In general, a line is given by a parametric equation p + sv , where p is the initial point, v is a direction vector, and s is a parameter. The question asks us to describe the image under...
