    Linear Algebra please help.Exam in a couple of hours.

    I am having trouble proving that the following are linear transformation:

    1) T:R^3---> R^2 is an L.T defined by T(a1,a2,a3)= (a1-a2,2a3)
    2)T:P2(R)--->R^3be a linear transformation defined by T(a0+a1x+a2x^2)=(a0,a1,a2)

    thanks

    thanks
    T((a,b,c) + (u,v,w)) = T(a+u, b+v, c+w) = (a+u-(b+v), 2(c+w))
    <br />
= ((a-b)+(u-v), 2c + 2w) = (a-b, 2c) + (u-v, 2w) = T(a,b,c) + T(u,v,w)

    T(\alpha (a,b,c)) = T(\alpha a, \alpha b, \alpha c) = (\alpha a - \alpha b, 2\alpha c)

    = \alpha (a-b, 2c) = \alpha T(a,b,c)

    just do it by definition.. you can easily do the second one..
