Find a 5x5 matrix M>0 such that if and x(t)= then

Can we use this definition to find the adjoint of T (T is given at the end)?

This part is the additional information to solve the question above;

Let V=L2[-1,1] be the Hilbert space of functions over the time interval [-1,1] with inner product

Let P5 V be the subspace of polynomials of order 4 or less, endowed with the inner product and norm of V, and let , be its natural basis. The linear transformation S is defined as

T is defined as the restriction of S to P5.

Sx=Tx

The matrix representation of T is below;
