 Posted - 03/27/2012 :  11:18:06 Consider the following transformations.T1 : R2 -> R4 is defined by T1(x1, x2) = (0, -10 |x1|, x2, x1 + x2)T2 : R4 -> R3 is defined by T2(x1, x2, x3, x4) = (x1 - 11 x2, x2, -10 x1)T3 : R3 -> R4 is defined by T3(x1, x2, x3) = (x1 + x2, 0, x2, -11 x1)T4 : R4 -> R3 is defined by T4(x1, x2, x3, x4) = (-11 + x1 + x2, x2, -10 |x1 + x2|)1. Which of these transformations map the zero vector to the zero vector? (T1, T2, T3) T4 do not map the zero vector because the first vector become -11 even x1 and x2 = 0.2. Which of these transformations are linear transformations? T3 and T4 Is it correct.
