finding T(v) relative to B and B'

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

find T(v) using the matrix relative to B and B'

T(x, y, z) = (2x, x + y, y + z, x + z)
v = (1, -5, 2)
B = { (2, 0, 1), (0, 2, 1), (1, 2, 1) }
B' = { (1, 0, 0, 1), (0, 1, 0, 1), (1, 0, 1, 0), (1, 1, 0, 0) }

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

T(2, 0, 1) = (4, 2, 1, 3)
= 4(1, 0, 0, 1) + 2(0, 1, 0, 1) + 1(1, 0, 1, 0) + 3(1, 1, 0, 0)
= (8, 5, 1, 6)
T(0, 2, 1) = (0, 2, 3, 1)
= (4, 3, 3, 2)
T(1, 2, 1) = (2, 3, 3, 2)
= (7, 5, 3, 5)

A = 8 4 7
5 3 5
1 3 3
6 2 5

Av = (2, 0, -8, 6)

but if the person I am checking against is right, the answer should be (2, -4, -3, 3)

I am confused as to if I can even use the method I am using in this case.

that's a matrix A btw, everything that was indented got shifted.

No, (4, 2, 1, 3) is NOT equal to (8, 5, 1, 6)! You are doing this backwards. You want to find numbers, a, b, c, d, such that (4, 2, 1, 3)= a(1, 0, 0, 1)+ b(0, 1, 0, 1)+ c(1 , 0, 1, 0)+ d(1, 1, 0, 0). That is you jeed to solve a+ c+ d= 4, b+ d= 2, c= 1, and a+ b= 3.
Then
$$\begin{bmatrix}a \\ b\\ c\\ d\end{bmatrix}$$
will be the first column of the matrix.

Re: finding T(v) relative to B and B'

ok that makes sense...and for the vector v = (1, -5, 2), do I need to solve a system like
(1, -5, 2) = a(2, 0, 1) + b(0, 2, 1) + c(1, 2, 1) and use (a, b, c) as my v and multiply that by A?
