Confusion regarding the basis of A and the basis of Range of A

  1. Oct 24, 2011 #1
    Hello everyone,

    I am having difficulty understanding the difference between the basis of a subspace A and and the basis of the range of A. My textbook seems to follow the same approach in determining both. So are they essentially the same?

    I cannot makes sense of your question. You talk about a subspace, A, and then about the range of A. A subspace does not have a "range". A linear transformation has a range.
