A transformation, f, is linear if and only if it satisfies f(au+ bv)= af(u)+ bf(v) for any vectors u and v and any numbers a and b.
If then what is . Is it the same as ?

Reason: Fixed a subscript
Yeah I don't know how to show whether it is Linear or not.

This is what I have done so far to prove whther it is linear:
A map is linear if
But so is not a linear transformation.
Now you try and do . I think it is linear.....
