Orthogonality Preserving Linear Map.
I'm having trouble with the following problem:
Let be a real vector space equipped with an inner product (and thus with a norm induced by that inner product).
Let be a bijective linear transformation such that if , then .
Given an orthonormal basis is , it clearly is the case that is an orthogonal basis of and hence is an orthonormal basis.
I now have to show that , but everything I've tried so far has lead me to a dead end.
Any hint or tip from someone who knows how to prove this would be greatly appreciated (I'm not looking for someone to post a complete solution).

since our original basis is orthonormal:
for j = 2,...,n so:
i think it's clear where i'm going with this....
