Since is an inner-product space, every linear functional is given by an inner product. In fact, if then the functional is given by . Use that fact to show that .

Now that you know , you have to figure out how to extend f to a linear functional on without increasing the norm. - May 2nd 2011, 11:36 AMraed
Thank you very much for your reply I have already proved the norm of f. But the problem is in finding a linear extension of f that preserves the norm.
