Is this a function or the result of a function?

    The function in question.

    I'm thinking result, but I got no explanation.

    I think it depends on context, but I'm inclined to agree with IsTim because the answers are ordered 2,3,1, which makes me think they come from somewhere else...

    The question did ask "derive the matrix associated with this transformation." So I'm going to agree with you both :)

    well hold on now 'this transformation' that is a mapping (a one-to-one mapping) so that would bin fact be a function!

    I'm wrong!

    given the information so was I... but now I'm pretty sure it's a function

    Is this the answer you got from the above problem, or...?

    Okay, let me post the question to clarify: "Using the definition of linearity, verify that the following permute function, f, is a linear transformation" But then it asks me to derive a matrix. So lets say I do derive a matrix, I multiple the vector [x1, x2, x3] with the matrix, shouldn't I get [x2, x3, x1], which is the image I posted earlier?

    the matrix that you derived, you got through using your permute function?

    The above image was given by the question. It looks like a vector, which is why I'm confused. I don't if it is F(x) equaling to a resulting vector or if that image indeed is the matrix it is asking me to derive.

    hm... Now I'm completely unsure as well! sorry, I think you may have to try your luck with this question again :/
