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

Let T (element of L(R^2,R^2) ) be the linear map T(a,b) = (a+b, 2a +2b)

A) What is the kernal of T

B) What is the image of T

C) Give the matrix for T in the standard basis for R^2

2. Relevant equations

Kernal of T = {v element of V st T(v) = 0}

Image of T = {w element of W st T(v) = w}

I'm not sure about the matrix

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm really not sure where to go with this. In this case, there are two variable (a,b) instead of 1 variable (v), so I don't know how either the kernal or the image work.

I don't know what standard basis means, and I can't find it in my notes.

Can someone help me?
