Question #10400269

Let L be a linear operator on R^n. Suppose that L(x) = 0 for some x does not equal to 0. Let A be the matrix representing L with respect to the standard basis {e1, e2, ......, en). Show that A is singular. No idea how to solve it and don't want to ask my instructor b/c she'll make this even more complicated. Please helpppppp. Thanks in advance.
