Hi -Based on this post, I was trying to look if there is generic rule for finding rank(AB) based on rank(A) and rank(B). I was trying to work that out but not going anywhere.

All I could find was rank(AB)=< Min[rank(A),rank(B)]

Can we say more? - Oct 6th 2009, 04:04 PMhayter221
hey tonio, can you rephrase your response solely in terms of matrices, or would the statement be the same?
