We have already noticed that a linear map ø: kk is completely determined by its value on one element of k, e.g., on 1. Also we noted that a linear map
$$ \varphi :k^2 \to k $$
is determined by φ(1,0) and φ(0,1). We Will now see how a linear map
$$ \varphi :V \to W $$
(V, W being vector over k of dimensions n, m) is determined by nm elements of k.
