Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Define a linear map \(T:F^4\rightarrow F^2\) given by \(T(y_1,y_2,y_3,y_4)=(y_1y_2,y_2y_3y_4)\). Notice that \(\ker t\) is the collection of \(((y_1,y_2,y_3,y_4)^T\) such that \(y_1y_2=0\) and \(y_2y_3y_4=0\). Hence \(\ker T=U\). Therefore \(U\) is a subspace of (F^4\). We claim that \(B=\{(1,1,0,1)^T,(1,1,1,0)^T\}\) is a basis of \(U\). One can easily check that each \(B\subset U\). Suppose \(s(1,1,0,1)^T+t(1,1,1,0)=0\) Then \((s+t,s+t,t,s)=(0,0,0,0)\) By looking at the last two coordinates, we have \(s=t=0\). Hence \(B\) is linearly independent. You just need to prove that \(B\) spans \(U\) (give it a try! :) )
