QUALIFYING EXAMINATION AUGUST 2002 MATH 554 - Prof. Moh You have to show your work and reasonings. (10 points) (1) Let A be an invertible square matrix. Prove that there is a set of elementary matrices E 1 ,...,E k such that E k ...E 1 A is the identity. (10 points) (2) Show that the number of invertible n × n matrices over F p is Q i = n - 1 i =0 ( p n - p i ) where p is a prime number and F p is Z/pZ , the finite field of p elements. 1
