Show that C is also a basis of V

Let B = {u1,u2} be a basis of a vector space V
Show that C = {v1 = 2u1 - 3u2, v2 = 2u1 + 2u2} is also a basis of V.

Also, what is the change of basis matrix from B to C?

Thanks very much for any help you give me.

Show that the vectors in C are linearly independent iff the vectors in B are linearly independent.

hi limpfisch,

Does this mean you have understood your earlier post about change of basis?
