Unformatted text preview: combining it with the others results in 20. Suppose that A is nonsingular, and that there exist matrices B and C, such that
AB I and AC I Based on the properties of matrices, it follows that
AB C AY 0 Write the difference of the two matrices, Y , in terms of its columns as
Y yy y. The -th column of the product matrix, AY , can be expressed as A yj . Now since all
columns of the product matrix consist only of zeros, we end up with homogeneous
systems of linear equations
A yj 0 , Since A is nonsingular, each system must have a trivial solution. That is, yj
. Hence Y 0
