Matrix Problem (Proving Invertibility)
In this exercise A is a square matrix.
1) Show that if A^2 = 0 then (A - I) is invertible.
2) Show that if A^3 = 0 then (A - I) is invertible.
3) Show that if A^4 = 0 then (A - I) is invertible.
4) Assume that there is a natural number k such that A^k = 0. Prove that (A - I)
Expanding on previous help
Formula that might be of use: remember the geometric series formula.
for |x|<1. But this is just to ensure your series converges. In this case your matrix is nilpotent, so your infinite series in fact is not quite so infinite.
