Unformatted text preview: + B ) + C = A + (B + C ) • Identity Property: If 0m×n is the m × n matrix whose entries are all 0, then 0m×n is called the m × n additive identity and for all m × n matrices A A + 0m×n = 0m×n + A = A • Inverse Property: For every given m × n matrix A, there is a unique matrix denoted −A called the additive inverse of A such that A + (−A) = (−A) + A = 0m×n The identity property is easily veriﬁed by resorting to the deﬁnition of matrix addition; just as the number 0 is the additive identity for real numbers, the matrix comprised of all 0’s does the same job for matrices. To establish the inverse property, given a matrix A = [aij ]m×n , we are looking for a matrix B = [bij ]m×n so that A + B = 0m×n . By the deﬁnition of matrix addition, we must have that aij + bij = 0 for all i and j . Solving, we get bij = −aij . Hence, given a matrix A, its additive inverse, which we call −A, does exist and is unique and, moreover, is given by the formula: −A = [−aij ]m×n . The long and short of this is: to get t...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
