comment Describe the smallest subspace of $M_{2\times 2}$ that contains matrices…
@BrianM.Scott, how does this translate to a basis? I'm used to row reducing into free variables that I translate into a general solution.

I guess my first instinct is to think, "No solution!". So if it's fine, then how do I translate that to a basis? Is it a free variable column, and I just disregard the column of 0s before it?

I actually did that, though I got [1 0 0 2; 0 1 0 -4; 0 0 0 -4]. I'm not sure what to make of the last row. Do I just disregard it?

asked Let $M_{2\times 2}$ be the vector space of all $2\times 2$ matrices. Show that the set of non-singular matrices is NOT a subspace.

Ok. I'll have to figure how to extract the SVD from A.

Okay. So, how would I find this from B? How would I prove that B is the basis for P_2? I'm not sure where to start.

@LittleO, how so?

A sheet my professor gave out as practice problems for our test.

The actual problem itself says that in the question.

It might not be, I could be wrong. I just followed a heuristic I found online, since it doesn't seem to be in my textbook.
