(8 pts) In the following let V , W , and Z be vector spaces of finite dimension over a field F with ordered bases , , and , respectively, and let T : V W and U : W Z be linear transformations. Indicate whether the following are true or false. i. If N ( T ) = { v } , then T is onetoone. T F ii. If U is onetoone and T is an isomorphism, then nullity( UT ) = 0. T F iii. W is isomorphic to Z if and only if dim( W ) = dim( Z ). T F iv. If U and T are invertible then UT is invertible. T F v. If dim( W ) = dim( Z ), then U is onto. T F vi. If v V , then [ UT (v)] = [ U ] [ T ] [v] . T F vii. If T is invertible, then ([ T ] ) 1 = ([ T 1 ] ). T F viii. If dim( W ) = dim( Z ) and U ( ) = , then U is invertible. T F 2. (5 pts) Explain how the underlined statement is equivalent to being onetoone and onto. Theorem 2.20. Let V and W be finitedimensional vector spaces over F of dimensions n and m , respectively, and let and be ordered bases for V and W respectively. Then the function : L ( V , W ) M m n ( F ), defined by ( T ) = [ T ] for T L ( V , W ) is an isomorphism. Proof. By Theorem 2.8, is linear. Hence we must show that is onetoone and onto. This is accomplished if we show that for every m n matrix A , there exists a unique linear transformation T : V W such that ( T ) = A. Let = { v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v n } , = { w 1 , w 2 , . . . , w n } , and A be a given m n matrix. By Theorem 2.6, there exists a unique linear transformation T : V W such that T (v j ) =...
