• so | 1 1 | cannot be an invertible matrix.
•
| 1 1|
• 29. There is an invertible nxn matrix with

If A and B are two 4x3 matrices such
• that AV = BV for all vectors v in R3, then
• matrices A and B must be equal.
• True. It follows that AI = BI for the 3x3
• identity matrix I. Thus A=B.
• 35. If matrices A and B commute, then the
• formula A2B = BA2 must hold.
• True.
A2B = AAB = ABA=BAA=BA2.
• 36. If A2 = A for an invertible nxn matrix
• A, then A must be In.

| 0 1 0 | | 0 1|
| 0 1 |
| 0 0|
• 44. There exist a 3x2 matrix A and a 2x3
• matrix B such that AB = I3.
• False. There must be some X =/= 0
• such that BX = 0. Then 0 = ABX = X.
• 45. If A2 + 3A + 4 I3 = 0 for a 3x3 matrix
• A then A must be invertible.
• True.
A(A+3) = -4 I3
• so the inverse of A is (-1/4)(A+3).
• 46. If A is an nxn such that A2 = 0, then
• matrix In+A must be invertible.
• True.
(In+A)(In-A) = I.
• 47. If matrix A represents a shear, then
•
• the formula A2-2A+I2 = 0 must hold.
• True. (A-I)X will be a fixed vector.
• So A(A-I)X = (A-I)X which means
• A2-2A+I = 0.

• from R3 to R3, then T(VxW) = T(V)xT(W)
• for all vectors V and W in R3.
