# Thread: Simple transpose question

1. ## Simple transpose question

Let $R_1=\lambda_{a_1} G_{a_1}+...+\lambda_{a_p} G_{a_p}\ \ , \ \ R_2=\lambda_{b_1} G_{b_1}+...+\lambda_{b_q} G_{b_q},$

where p,q are natural numbers, the lambdas are real constants and the Gs are nxn matrices.

If we have $R_1=R_2$, do we then also have $R_1^T = R_2^T$?

2. Yes. If two matrices are equal, their transposes will also be equal.

Thanks. I think I forgot the fact that R_1 and R_2 are matrices.

4. You're welcome. Have a good one!
