    1 Prove that the solution space of AX = 0, where A is a m x n matrix, is a
    vector space.

    2 Are the vectors x3 - 1, x2 - x and x linearly independent in P3 ? Why ?

    3 Determine whether or not the function T : Mmn --> Mmn de ned by T(A) = A + B, where B is a mixed m x n matrix, is a linear transformation. If it is a linear transformation, verify this fact.

    4 The function T : R2 --> R2 such that T[(x; y)] = (��x; y) is called a reflection
    in the y-axis. Is this function a linear transformation ?

    5 Find the kernel and the range for the linear transformation T : R2 ! R2
    given by T[(x; y)] = (2x; x �� y)

    6 Let the linear transformation T : Mnn --> Mnn be defined by T(A) = A+At.
    Find ker(T).

    B = f(3;-2); (6; 8)g and B0 = f(1; 0); (0; 1)g

    8 Let the linear transformation T : R2 ! R2 be defined by T[(x; y)] = (2x + y; x - y). Find [T]BB where B = f(2;-3); (4; 5)g and B0 = fe1; e2g

    9 Find the dimension of the solution space of the following homogenous system of linear equations;
    x + y - 3x = 0
    4x + y + 5z = 0
