When working with vectors we often implicitly use the standard basis. For example, the vector x = [2; -3] tells us the coordinates with respect to the standard basis {[1; 0], [0; 1]}.

At other times it is desirable to work with different coordinate systems that are represented by a different basis. We denote the vector x with respect to the basis B as [x]B.

In this problem we’re provided a basis B and the [x]B. We then compute the vector x, the coordinates of [x]B with respect to the standard basis.
