Q2 [5 marks] Find QR factorisation of the matrix A = ( 5 17 12 7 ) . Q3 [3 marks] Let V = (V,+, ·,R) and W = (W,+, ·,R) be vector spaces and let T : V → W be a linear map. a) Give definition of the null space nullT of the map T . b) Let V = P2(R) and W = R2. Consider the subspace (you do not have to proof that it is a subspace). V = { p ∈ P2(R) : p(1) = 0 and p(−1) = 0 } ⊆ P2(R). Find a linear map T such that V = nullT. You do not have to show that the map T is linear. Q4 [5 marks] Let V = (V,+, ·,R) be a vector space and let B = {v1,v2,v3} ⊆ V be a basis. a) Define what it means that the triple (a1, a2, a3) ∈ R3 is the coordinate vector of x ∈ V with respect to the basis B.
