Transforming Vectors with Matrices

Instructions: Unless otherwise stated, vectors are represented as column matrices.

Let [math]vec{v}[/math] be a vector with 2 or more components and represented as a column matrix, and let [math]A[/math] be a transformation matrix. When the transformation matrix is applied to [math]vec{v}[/math] it results in a new vector, [math]vec{w}[/math]. Which of the following correctly represents this?
  1. [math]vec{w} = vec{v}A[/math]
  2. [math]vec{w} = A vec{v}[/math]
  3. [math]vec{w} = vec{v} A vec{v} [/math]
  4. Both options (a) and (b) are correct.

For the transformation matrix [math]A = [[1,0],[0,-1]][/math], how is the vector [math]vec{v} = <<3, 4>>[/math] affected if it is multiplied with [math]A ?[/math]
  1. It has been rotated 90° clockwise.
  2. It has reversed direction.
  3. It has been reflected over a horizontal line.
  4. The resulting transformation is a combination of reflections and rotations.

  1. The vector stays the same.
  2. The vector now only has 2 components.
  3. The vector's third component is changed to zero.
  4. At least one component of the vector is reduced to zero.
