    What does it do to the (standard) basis vectors of R^2? That might help you see what transformation it represents.

    I'm confused with what you mean.
    what is the standard basis vectors is it the identity matrix?

    You should be able to identify that it's of a standard form of a type of transformation matrix.

    I would use the base vectors which are
    1
    0

    and

    0
    1

    Multiply the matrix by each of those to see what happens to a unit square..

    wait is it a rotation then enlargement because it enlarges by root(2) cause the det is 2 and looks like it rotates by 45 degrees

    I'm not sure
