Transforming Vectors with Matrices Answer Key

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.
