Homework Help: Change of basis [ x ] B + [ y ] B = [ x+y ] B[

  1. Nov 9, 2008 #1
    change of basis [x]B + [y]B = [x+y]B[

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

    Let B = {v1,.......vn} be a basis for a vector space V, and let x = a1v1 + ...... anvn and y = b1v1 + .......+ bnvn be arbitrary vectors in V.

    Find [x]B, [y]B and [x+y]B

    2. Relevant equations

    [x]B + [y]B = [x+y]B

    3. The attempt at a solution

    No clue
