In R 1 [ t ], let E = { 1 , t } be the standard basis and let B = { 4 + 5 t, 3 + 4 t } be an alternate basis. Let L : R 1 [ t ] → R 1 [ t ] be the linear transformation L ( a + a 1 t ) = (16 a 12 a 1 ) + (20 a 15 a 1 ) t . a) Find P EB and P BE . b) Find the matrix of L relative to the standard basis (that is, find [ L ] E ). c) Find the matrix of L relative to the basis B (that is, find [ L ] B ). [The answer to (c) is much simpler than the answer to (b) and illustrates why we use bases like B .] 3. Let A =...
