Can anyone explain exactly how you are supposed to apply coodinates in matrices? I am somewhat lost in class.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example say, i have the coordinates A =

1 2

0 2 --> this is a 2 X 2 matrix

and I have to apply this to the basis

B =

1 0

0 0,

0 1

0 0,

0 1

0 1

-> The book gives the following matrix as the answer:

1 0 0

0 1 1

0 0 1

- But I still don't get how they got here. Can anyone outline the process?

Thank you!
