Let a vector y = {1,2,2} and a vector x perpendicular = f(x) where f is a linear transformation. Find the matrix representation for f. If vector x = {3,2,4}, find explicitly x perpendicular.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't understand this question. Let me try to interpret it: \[y = (1,2,2), f(x) = x^\perp.\] Find f in matrix form. Find \[x^\perp\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is pretty much word for word how the question appeared on my test, i agree it is pretty vague. From what I understand f is a matrix that transforms a vector such as x, into the perpendicular. It never stated to use y but I am assuming it is required at some point... for the second part I figure if you can find the linear transformation matrix, then you simply just apply that to the given vector x, does that help any?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lets see. x perp is easy. We need to find a vector such that 3 * x1 + 2 * x2 + 4 * x3 = 0. so x1 = 2, x2 = 1, x3 = 1, or xperp = (2,1,1), or any scalar multiple of it.
