PSET 3 - DUE FEBRUARY 24 Note the date change for this Pset! Due Thursday at 11:00 a.m., before class. 1. Let T : R n R n be a linear transformation and let P denote a paralellpiped in R n formed by the vectors { v 1 , ··· ,v n } . Let m ( T ) denote the matrix of the transformation of T using the standard basis in R n . Finally, let T ( P ) denote the image of the parallelpiped under the transformation T . Prove vol ( T ( P )) = | det ( m ( T )) | vol ( P ) . (5 pts) 2. 14.4: 23 (5 pts) 3. Let P represent the plane containing the points (1 , 0 , 0) , (3 , 2 , 4) , (1 , 1 , 1). Find the point on the plane that minimizes the distance between the plane and the origin. Remark: You should solve this problem without using an optimization technique (don’t
