Since <2, 1> and <1, 2> are independent, we can write as a linear combination of them. That is, there are numbers, a and b, such that a<2, 1>+ b<1, 2>= <2a+ b, a+ 2b>= . That is the same as saying that 2a+ b= x and a+ 2b= y. Solve those equations for a and b in terms of x and y. a<2, 1>, for that a, will be the projection of on <2, 1>. Now, do you know how to write a linear transformation as a matrix in a given ordered basis? Apply the matrix to each basis vector in turn, writing each result as a linear combination of the basis vectors. The coefficients form the columns in the matrix.
