Suppose A 2 is invertible and has inverse matrix B . Then A 2 B = I , by deﬁnition. Hence A ( AB ) = I . Therefore, A is invertible and has inverse AB . (c) is false. For example, if L A and L B happen to be the same line, then AB is the result of reﬂecting twice across the same line, which is just the identity transformation. The identity transformation certainly is not a reﬂection across any line. (More generally, the 1 product of two reﬂections will be a rotation; see problem 42 in section 2.4 of the Bretscher text.) 2...
