**Find the 2x2-matrix, A, belonging to the linear "map"/"projection", T, with regard to the canonical basis of R^2 (real numbers). **

A small note e(1) means e sub one.

T(e(1) + e(2)) = e(1) + e(2), T(-e(1)+e(2)) = (1/2)e(1) - (1/2)e(2)

Does anyone have an idea on this matter?

Thanks in advance.
