Suppose A is invertible and AB = 0 , where 0 denotes the zero matrix. Show that B = 0 . Since A is invertible, we have the matrix A - 1 to work with. Multiplying AB = 0 by A - 1 , we get A - 1 ( AB ) = A - 1 0 . Using the associative law, this becomes ( A - 1 A ) B = A - 1 0 . But A - 1 A = I and the right hand side is 0 , so we get B = 0 . 3. Suppose B = PAP - 1 , where A and P are invertible n × n matrices. Find B - 1 . The inverse of the product of invertible matrices is the product of the
