Hi, this topic is very scant in my text and notes. I have been given this question. I am not sure where to start (or continue, for that matter). Can I have some assistance please??

Define a linear transformation $\displaystyle T: P_2 \rightarrow R^2$ by $\displaystyle T(p) = \left[ \begin{array}{cc}P(0)\\P(0) \end{array} \right]$. Find polynomials $\displaystyle p_1$ and $\displaystyle p_2$ in $\displaystyle P_2$ that span the kernel of $\displaystyle T$, and describe the range of $\displaystyle T$.
