3.3. VECTOR SPACES 163 Proposition 3.3.13. (Factorization Theorem for Vector Spaces) Let V and V be vector spaces over a ﬁeld K , and let T W V ±! V be a surjec- tive linear map with kernel M . Let N ² M be a vector subspace and let ± W V ±! V=N denote the quotient map. The there is a surjective homomorphism Q T W V=N ±! V such that Q T ı ± D T . (See the following diagram.) The kernel of Q T is M=N ² V=N . V T q q q q q V ± q q q q q ± ± ± ± ± ± q q q q q q q Q T V=N Proof. By Proposition 2.7.14 , Q T W v C N 7! T.v/ deﬁnes a group homo- morphism from V=N onto V with kernel M=N . We only have to check that this map respects multiplication by elements of K . This follows from the computation:
