Start with hints

Try it first!

[/et_pb_tab][et_pb_tab title="Hint 1" _builder_version="4.1" hover_enabled="0"]Rank(T) = dim(Range(T)) There is one easy way to calculate rank of every linear transformation. Step 1:  Take by basis  \beta= \{e_1,....,e_n\} of the vector space V . Step 2: Write down the matrix [T]_{\beta}^{\beta} Step 3: Calculate the rank of the matrix  [T]_{\beta}^{\beta} Now can you follow these steps to get the answer?  [/et_pb_tab][et_pb_tab title="Hint 2" _builder_version="4.1" hover_enabled="0"]Standard Basis of V is \{1,x,x^{2},x^{3}\} = \beta (Tf) (x) =f(x) - xf^{'}(x) (T1) (x) = 1 - 0 = 1; (Tx) (x) = x - x = 0; (T x^{2}) (x)= x^{2} - 2x^{2} = -x^{2} ; (T x^{3}) (x) = -2x^{3} So, [T]_{\beta}^{\beta} = \begin{pmatrix}  1 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\  0 & 0 & 0 & 0\\  0 & 0 & -1 & 0\\  0 & 0 & 0 & -2 \\  \end{pmatrix} Hence the rank is 3 [/et_pb_tab][/et_pb_tabs][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.27.4" text_font="Raleway|300|||||||" text_text_color="#ffffff" header_font="Raleway|300|||||||" header_text_color="#e2e2e2" background_color="#0c71c3" custom_margin="48px||48px" custom_padding="20px|20px|20px|20px" border_radii="on|5px|5px|5px|5px" box_shadow_style="preset3"]
