Problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose we wish to expand a function defined on the interval (a,b) in terms of Legendre polynomials. Show that the transformation u = (2x-a-b)/(b-a) maps the function onto the interval (-1,1).

How do I even start working with this? I haven't got a clue...
