Re: Linear Algebra Proofs

A) if A is invertible, then -A is also invertible (with inverse -A^{-1}), but their sum is the 0-matrix, which is not invertible. this means we do NOT have closure under vector addition of invertible matrices.

B) consider the matrices:

$\displaystyle A = \begin{bmatrix}1&0\\0&0 \end{bmatrix}; B = \begin{bmatrix}0&0\\0&1 \end{bmatrix}$. what is A+B?

C) nope. they do have the same dimension, though (look at 3x3 matrices of rank 2).

D)If A and A^{T} have the same number of pivots...then...what? something is missing, here....

Re: Linear Algebra Proofs

D) Does A and A*T have the same number of Pivots I think. Any other answers to these problems to expand what the person above said.
