I'm completely lost on this one.

I think the question is saying matrix A is a representation of a linear transformation, with the a_{11}and a_{21}transforming to a_{31}, and so on for the other two columns. But I don't see how you can get that result with a_{12}being negative. This is all I could come up with after days of looking at this problem, and I'm just going around in circles

As for the product C=BA well that's pretty straightforward.

If someone can point me in the right direction it will be very much appreciated!
