Unformatted text preview: Purdue University MA 353: Linear Algebra II with Applications Homework 7, due Mar. 5, Some Solutions sec. 2.4 #4: Let A and B be n × n invertible matrices. Prove that AB is invertible and ( AB )- 1 = B- 1 A- 1 . Proof. Recall that AB is invertible iff there exists an n × n matrix C such that C ( AB ) = ( AB ) C = I n . And if this is the case C = ( AB )- 1 . So let C = B- 1 A- 1 . Then C ( AB ) = ( B- 1 A- 1 )( AB ) = B- 1 ( A- 1 A ) B = B- 1 B = I n , and also ( AB ) C = ( AB )( B- 1 A- 1 ) = A ( BB- 1 ) A- 1 = AA- 1 = I n . Hence AB is invertible and ( AB )- 1 = B- 1 A- 1 . #5: Let A be invertible. Prove that A t is invertible and ( A t )- 1 = ( A- 1 ) t . Proof. The argument is similar to the above problem. Namely, consider ( A t )( A- 1 ) t = ( A- 1 A ) t = ( I n ) t = I n , and also ( A- 1 ) t ( A t ) = ( AA- 1 ) t = ( I n ) t = I n . #12: Prove Theorem 2.21, namely φ β : V → F n given by φ ( v ) = [ v ] β is an isomor- phism, where β = { v 1 ,v 2 ,...,v n } is an order basis....
