Linear transformation

1. Homework Statement
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. Homework Equations
Nothing.

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?
