(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Determine what the tranformation does to the square with vertices (0,0), (0,1), (1,1) and (1,0). Draw the image of the square under these tranformations. Then find the change in area of the square under these transformations.

a)

[1 1]

[1 2]

b)

[0 -1]

[2 -1]

c)

[4 1/4]

[3 1/3]

2. Relevant equations[/b]

3. The attempt at a solution

I've plotted out all of the matrices on a graph but i don't understand how to find the change in area. How do I find the change in area?
