# Trying to find an isometry T(X)=MX

Hi, I have a question:
I am trying to find an isometry such that T(aU+bV)≠aT(U)+bT(V).
I have tried so many possibilities. I gave T(X)=MX given that M is a matrix that doesn't have an inverse. But i still can't find a nice matrix that will make the proposition possible.
