Evening,

The reason for this post is because as the title suggests, I have a question concerning matrix transformation. These are essentially test prep problems and I am quite stuck to be honest.

Here are the [questions](https://prnt.sc/riq7m0) and here are the [answers](https://prnt.sc/riq8b6).

For problem **#14**, pretty simple. [Here](https://prnt.sc/riqb0v) is my solution.

Now, for problem **#15a**, I'm confused. The solution states and solves for P^-1 . How and why? Shouldn't #14 and #15a share the same answer of P given i am simply asked to find the transition matrix from the basis B to the basis B'? And even then, i didn't find the given answer to be the inverse of P so how exactly can i go about solving this.?

As for problem **#15b**, i tried doing the reverse of problem #14 as i now am asked to solve BB' rather than B'B. So, in solving BB', i got an answer that doesn't resemble the given answer in the slightest. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Seems i have my whole concept of how to go about transformations misconstrued. Please help. Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance and good day. Cheers!)
