    I Trying to get a better understanding of the quotient V/U in linear algebra

    Hi! I want to check if i have understood concepts regarding the quotient U/V correctly or not. I have read definitions that ##V/U = \{v + U : v ∈ V\}## . U is a subspace of V. But v + U is also defined as the set ##\{v + u : u ∈ U\}##. So V/U is a set of sets is this the correct understanding...

    I Linear transformations

    Let A={ex,sin(x),excos(x),sin(x),cos(x)} and let V be the subspace of C(R) equal to span(A). Define T:V→V,f↦df/dx. How do I prove that T is a linear transformation? (I can do this with numbers but the trig is throwing me).

    Eigenvectors and orthogonal basis

    Homework Statement I have a linear transformation ##\mathbb{R}^3 \rightarrow \mathbb{R}^3##. The part that asks for a basis of eigenvectors I've already solved it. The possible eigenvectors are ##(1,-3,0), (1,0,3), (\frac{1}{2}, \frac{1}{2},1) ##. Now the exercise wants me to show that there is...

    I Linear Transformation notation

    I'm confused about the notation T:R^n \implies R^m specifically about m. From my understanding if n=2 then (x1, x2). Are we transforming n=2 to another value m for example (x1, x2, x3)?

    Derivatives and Linear transformations

    Let G be a non-empty open connected set in Rn, f be a differentiable function from G into R, and A be a linear transformation from Rn to R. If f '(a)=A for all a in G, find f and prove your answer. I thought of f as being the same as the linear transformation, i.e. f(x)=A(x). Is this true?

    Need help finding the preimage

    Consider the linear transformation T: R3 --> R3 /w T(v1,v2,v3)=(0, v1+v2, v2+v3) What is the preimage of w=(0,2,5) ? I tried setting up the system of equations and got v1+v2= 2 and v2+v3=5 but after that I got kinda lost in how to find the individual solutions?
