how do i determine whether the following is a linear transformation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

T1(x,y)=(1,y)

i know that it must satisfy the conditions:

(a) T(v+w)=T(v)+T(w)

(b) T(cv)=cT(v), where c is a real constant

and v and w are real vectors in 2D.

v=(v1,v2) and w=(w1,w2)

but i'm still confused.

Thank you
