Unformatted text preview: A T is invertible and ( A T )1 = ( A1 ) T . 4. Let A = ± i 1i ¶ and B = ± 1 2i 2 i 1 + 4 i ¶ , both invertible matrices with complex entries. Find AB , A1 , B1 , ( AB )1 , A1 B1 and B1 A1 . Express A and B and each of these matrices as a product of elementary matrices. 5. Suppose that V is any vector space over any ﬁeld, and W 1 and W 2 are subspaces of V . (a) Show that the intersection W 1 ∩ W 2 is also a subspace of V . (b) Show that the union W 1 ∪ W 2 is almost never a subspace of V — speciﬁcally, show that this only occurs if W 1 ⊆ W 2 or W 2 ⊆ W 1 . 1 (c) We let the sum W 1 + W 2 be deﬁned as the set { ~w 1 + ~w 2 : ~w 1 ∈ W 1 , ~w 2 ∈ W 2 } . Show that this set is a subspace of V . 2...
