HOMEWORK 5 - SOLUTIONS For all of the following exercises, decide if the statement is true or false, and then prove your decision correct. 1. False. We know that two vector spaces are isomorphic iff they have the same dimension, but this doesn’t mean that any linear transformation between isomorphic vector spaces must be an isomorphism. In this case, T could’ve just been the zero map. 2. (GRADED - EASY). False. This is almost true, what’s missing is the hypothesis that V and W have the same finite dimension. For instance if T : R → { 0 } is a (in fact the only) linear transformation from R to the trivial vector space consisting of just a zero vector, then T is surjective but not one-to-one. 3. False. We proved in class that a linear transformation is injective iff its nullity is 0, and the statement/proof of this fact had nothing to do with whether or not the domain/codomain were finite-dimensional. 4. (GRADED - MEDIUM) True. By the Extending by Linearity Theorem, a linear
