Question about linear transformations if you have a matrix such as(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

| 5 6 9 |

| 5 0 3 |

| 9 -3 -7 |

Can it be a matrix transformation? Or does it have to follow the identity matrix?

Can be a transformation and the "y" transformation being just makes the it flat on the y axis? or does it have to be a form of the identity matrix?

Or am I totally misunderstanding this?
