Need your help on BASIS.

  1. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Let v=5t-2,S={v_1,v_2 }={t+1,t-1} is a basis of P_1 where P_1 is a vector space of all polynomials of degree ≤1. What is [v]s? Let v=5t-2,S={v_1,v_2 }={t+1,t-1} is a basis of P_1 where P_1 is a vector space of all polynomials of degree ≤1. What is [v]s?

    2. The attempt at a solution
    I need your help to provide me the correct way of putting the answers together, like the one in the answer scheme. Thanks in advance!

    You need to show some attempt at doing the problem yourself before receiving help here.
     
  4. v=[5t-2]=a[t+1]+b[t-1]

    (1st) at+bt=5t
    (2nd) a-b=-2
    v=3⁄2 v_1+7⁄2 v_2
    [v]_s=[■(3⁄2@7⁄2)]
    is this correct?

    Looks good. I'm not exactly sure what the following notation means, though:

    What about those of us who do not use "Microsoft Word Office"?
