    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?

    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.
