Problem 1 (20 points  5 points each) (a) State what it means for a subset S of a vector space V to span V . S spans V if, for any x ∈ V , there are x 1 ,...,x n ∈ S and a 1 ,...,a n ∈ F such that x = a 1 x 1 + ··· + a n x n . (b) State what it means for a vector space to be infinitedimensional . V is infinitedimensional if V is not finitedimensional, that is, V does not have a finite spanning set. (c) Suppose T : V → W is a linear transformation. Define the range of T . The range of T is R ( T ) = { y ∈ W : there is x ∈ V such that T ( x ) = y } . (d) Suppose T : V → W is a linear transformation. Define the nullity of T . The nullity of T is the dimension of the null space of T . Problem 2 (20 points  4 points each) For each of the following statements, determine if they are true or false. If they are true, prove them. If they are false, provide a counterexample . (a) dim( M m × n ( F )) = mn . This is true: the set { E ij : 1 ≤ i ≤ m, 1 ≤ j ≤ n } is a basis for M m × n ( F ), where E ij is the matrix with a 1 in the ( i,j )entry and 0 in all other entries.)entry and 0 in all other entries....
