Hey everyone i have no clue how to solve this one, please help.

If B is any nilpotent matrix prove that I-B is invertible and find a formula for (I-B)^-1 in terms of powers of B?

Thanks for your help but i still don't really understand how to find a formula for (I-B)^-1 in terms of powers of B. What do you mean by the series is a

**finite sum**because of the nilpotency??
