Let $V$ and $ W$ be finite dimensional vector space over $\mathbb R $ and let $T_1 : V \rightarrow V$ and $T_2 : W \rightarrow W$ be linear transformation whose minimal polynomial are $f_1 (x)= x^3+x^2+x+1$ and$f_2 (x)= x^4 - x^2-2$. let $T : V\oplus W \rightarrow V \oplus W$ be linear transformation s.t. $$T(v,w) =(T_1(v),T_2 (w)) $$ minimal polynomial of T is $f(x)$, then deg $f(x)$ =? and nulity T =?
I can't find such $T_1$, $T_2$and $T$ please guide me..
I don't know where to begin... I am stuck on this problem. Can anyone help me please?
