Thanks a lot.

I am just not certain about the technique you used (I think it's
partially do to the notation we have to use on these boards).

Specifically I am not sure how you formed T_A or T_1 (why is T_A =
(5x_1 + 4x_2, 3x_1 + 6x_2, ?, ?)).

If you could elaborate on this process a little further, I'd appreciate
it.
