Math 235 Assignment 4 Due: Wednesday, Jun 2nd 1. Prove that the product of two orthogonal matrices is an orthogonal matrix. 2. Prove that if R is an orthogonal matrix, then det R = ± 1. Give an example of a matrix A that has det A = 1, but is not orthogonal. 3. Observe that the dot product of two vectors ~x,~ y R n can be written as ~x · ~ y = ~x T ~ y. Use this fact to prove that if an n × n matrix R is orthogonal, then
