Okay, I will just admit that I stink at using mathematical proof in Linear. I hope someone can give me a push with this problem(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Prove that T : R(real)^3 -> R(real)^3 defined by T([yz,xz,zy]) is not a linear transformation.

Reading my book I know that I need to prove that the transformation is closed under additivity and scalar multiplication, but alas I do not know where to begin with this. Any help would be appreciated.
