Linear transformation

  1. Feb 10, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The set Hom(V,W) is the collection of all linear transformations from the F-space V to the F-space W. Suppose that F,V, and W are all finite. Suppose that F=Zp for some prime p, that V is n-dimensional over F, and W is n-dimensional over F. How many elements does Hom(V,W) have?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm pretty sure it's p^n.

    I have the proof of dimV=m and dimU=n meaning dimHom(V,U)=mn. How do I transform this proof to the one I want?

    Would the answer still just be n^2?
