v E V. If Q, 3' are two ordered bases for V, determine the changeof—basis matrixP = (IdV; Q, 3') and its inverse P_1 when V, (8, Q” are as follows:
(a) V= R3, Q9= 6’3 (the standard ordered basis on R3),Q%' = (1, 0, 0), (1,1, 0), (1,1,1); (b) V= R4, $=(—1,1,1, 0),(1,—1,0,1),(1,0,—1,1),(0,1,1,—1), (8' =64 (the standard ordered
basis on 03“). V Solution
(a) Construct the changeof—basis matrixP from Q to Q'. Solving the vector equation Id(1, 0, 0) = (1, 0, 0) =a (1, 0, 0) +b (1,1, 0) +c (1, 1, 1) forthe scalar coefﬁcientsa, b, c gives
Id(1, 0,0)=(1,0,0)=1(1,0 , 0)+ 0(1,1,0)+0(1,1,1),andsimi1ar1y
Id(0,1,0)(0,1,0)—1(1,0, 0) +1 (1,1,0) +0(1,1,1),and
Id(0,0,1)= (0,0,1)=0(1,0 0—)1(1,1,0)+1(1,1,1),hence

Id(1, 0, 0) = (1, 0, 0) =a (1, 0, 0) +b (0,1, 0) +0 (0, 0,1) forthe scalar coefﬁcientsa, b, c gives
Id(1,0,0)=(1,0,0)=1 (1,0,0) +0 (0,1,0) +0 (0,0,1) andsimilarly
Id(1,1,0)=(1,1,0)=1 (1,0,0) +1 (0,1,0) +0 (0,0,1),and
Id(1,1,1)=(1,1,1)=1 (1,0,0) +1 (0,1,0) +1 (0,0,1),hence
1 1 1
P_1= 0 1 1 . Note that because the target basisQis the standard basis, the columns of the
0 0 1 changeofbasis matrix P_1 are just the vectors in the source basis (8'. This must always be the
case. (b) Construct the changeof—basis matrix P from Q3 to B'. Id(—1,1,1, 0)=(—1,1,1, 0) =—1 (1, 0, 0, 0) +1 (0,1, 0, 0) +1 (0, 0,1, 0) +0 (0, 0, 0,1),
etc. Hence, because the target basis W is the standard basis, the columns of the changeof—basis
matrix P are the elements of Q, i.e. —1 1 1 0

2. [20] The linear map on: R4 —> R3 is represented by the matrixA = (on; 64, 63) = 0 —l 2 1 , 2 1 4 3
where 63, 64 are the standard ordered bases on R3, R4. Using information from your solution to Question 1 above where appropriate (or otherwise) write down or calculate the following matrices:
(a) P= (Idm, 64, 8) andP_1, where 8= (—1, 1, 1, 0), (1,—1, 0,1), (1, 0,—1,1), (0,1,1,—1); (b) Q=(161m,63,@),[email protected]=(1,0,0), (1,1,0), (1,1,1);

x, y are column vectors. (a) Find a basis (if one exists) for ker(A) and extend it (on the left) to an ordered basis for the
domain (R4). (b) Choose a basis for im (A) from the image of the basis for the domain (excluding the basis for the kernel) and, if necessary, extend it (on the right) to a basis for the codomain (R3).
(c) Obtain an invertible 4 x 4 matrix P and an invertible 3 x 3 matrix Q such that QA P has the I 0
general form r , where Ir is the r x r identity matrix, r = rank(A ), and the zero submatrices
O 0
represented by 0 may have different shapes and some may be absent.

(a) SolvmgA x = 0 gives the followmg solution 0 , where tis an arb1trary real number, t
which represents the kernel as a onedimensional vector subspace. Hence, a convenient choice of —2

basis (by choosing t= 1) is 0 . We can then extend this basis on the left to give 1

0 0 0 l (b) Mapping only the extension of the basis for the domain (thereby avoiding the kernel) gives a 1 2 3
spanning set for the image as 0 , 1 , 2 . These 3 vectors are obviously linearly
2 1 4 independent and so must form a basis for the whole codomain (R3). (0) The changeof—basis matrix in the domain from the new basis to the standard basis is the 1 0 0 —2

matrix whose columns are the new basis vectors, i.e.P= 0 0 1 0 . Similarly, the change
