Let V = {p element of R[x] | deg(p) <=3} be the vector space of all polynomials of degree 3 or less.

b) Give the matrix for d2/dx2 in the basis {1,x,x^2, x^3} for V

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

[1 1 1 1

0 0 2 6]

i used the coefficients to get the first row, and then took the 2nd derivative and used the coefficients for the 2nd row. is this right?
