  1. Feb 9, 2005 #1

    If I transform a set of linearly independent vectors by a one-to-one linear transformation, is the transformed set also linearly independent?

    Suppose it isn't. What can you say about it?

    make sure you know all the definitions of the terms you are using. deciding this problem comes almost immediately just from knowing what the words mean.
