Unformatted text preview: Sample questions for Prelim 2 Math 2940 Fall 2010 This represents relevant questions that have appeared on previous prelims and finals. The overall length is not representative of a single prelim. 1. Let T : R 3 R 4 be the linear transformation defined by T a b c = a- 2 b + 3 c 3 a + 2 b + c a + 2 b- c a + c . (a) Find a matrix A so that T a b c = A a b c . (b) Find the dimension and a basis for C ( A ). (c) Find the dimension and a basis for N ( A ). 2. In each of the following, you are given a vector space V and a subset W V . Decide whether W is a subspace of V , and prove your answer is correct. (a) V is the space R 2 2 of all 2 2 matrices, and W is the set of 2 2 matrices A such that A 2 = A . (b) V is the space of differentiable functions, and W is the set of those differentiable functions that satisfy f (3) = 0....
