__Theorem 2.14__: Let V and W be finite-dimensional vector spaces having ordered bases B and C, respectively, and let T: V-->W be linear. Then, for each u in V, we have

[T(u)]

_{C}= [T]

_{B}

^{C}

g: F-->W by g(a) = aT(u) for all a in F. Let A = {1} be the standard

ordered basis for F. Notice that g = Tf.. Identifying

column vectors as matrices and using Theorem 2.11, we obtain

(#1) [T(u)]

_{B}.__Proof__: Fix u in V, and define the linear transformations f: F --> V by f(a) = au andg: F-->W by g(a) = aT(u) for all a in F. Let A = {1} be the standard

ordered basis for F. Notice that g = Tf.. Identifying

column vectors as matrices and using Theorem 2.11, we obtain

(#1) [T(u)]

_{C}= [g(1)]_{C}= [g]_{A}^{C}= [Tf]_{A}^{C}= [T]_{B}^{C}[f]_{A}^{B}= [T]_{B}^{C}[f(1)]_{B}= [T]_{B}^{C}
