# Math Help - Linear Transformation

1. ## Linear Transformation

Let $V = P_2$ and let $W$ be the real numbers.Show that the function defined by $L(at^2 + bt + c ) = abc$ is not a linear transformation.

2. ## Re: Linear Transformation

Hey mastermin346.

What have you tried? Linearity only has two conditions where f(x+y) = f(x) + f(y) and f(ax) = af(x).
