I have an assignment problem and I dont even know where to start... I'm taking the course through correspondence so i have no notes or prof to talk to... i've read my text and course manual over and over again but I just can't figure it out(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let T: P2->P2 be a linear transformation defined by T(a+bx+cx^2) = (a+b+c)+2(b+c)x+3cx^2. Let B = {1,1+x,3+4x+2x^2} and B' = {1,x,x^2} be two ordered bases of P2. Find the following:

a) (T)B'B'

b) P the transition matrix from B to B'

c) P-1 the transition matrix from B' to B

d) (T)BB

i somewhat understand part b and c... i know there is explanation of those in my text that i understand... but i dont know how to even approach part a and d... there is nothing even remotely similar in my text examples
