Question:

If T is a linear operator on a vector space V(F) such that (zero map), then show that T is invertible.

i know that to show invertible i have to show 1-1 and onto, but i have no idea how to begin showing this ... any help?

. Now see if the kernel has any vectors different from zero.

Can you commute T and I-T?

Yes, of course: . Any linear operator from a vector space to itself commutes with itself and the identity.
