W is the set of all polynomials in P_2 such that p(1)=0 is a subspace of P_2. Find a basis for W...I know that the answer is (t1,t^21). This is correct because any coordinates chosen relative to the basis vectors remains in the subspace of p(1)=0. Fore example, 5(t1)+2(t^21)= 2t^2+5t7.....p(1)=2(1)+5(1)7....p(1)=0....I just want to know how to discover this basis so that I can solve similar problems in the future.
