Matrix transformations please help?
let f be the linear transformation represented by the matrix
M = (4 2)
.......(0 2)
a) state what effect f has on areas and whether it changes orientation
b) Find the matrix that represents the inverse of f
c) Use the matrix you found in part b to find the image f(c) of the unit circle C under f , in the form
ax^2 + bxy + cy^2 = d
where a, b, c, d are integers
d) what is the area enclosed by f(c)?
My answers;
a)det M = (4*2)  (2*0) = 8 so f scales areas by factor 8 and changes orientation
b) m^1 = 1/8 (2 2) ... (1/4 1/4)
..............=..............o 4) = (0 1/2)
c) 1/16x^2 + 2/16xy + 1/16y^2 = 1
which is;
x^2 + 2xy + y^2 = 16
(ive struggled with this one so if its wrong i would appreciate some help with my working out)
d) the area enclosed by f(C) is 16pi
Thanks
