    You could go the linear algebra route (which you may not be allowed to do) and say something like: "since it's linear, the transformation can be represented by a square n x n matrix which, after row reduction to echelon form has a pivot in every row and every column thereby making the linear transformation one-to-one and onto." This seems too easy though... :-p Your prof might want you to work more directly from abstract set-point topological definitions.
