 T O P I C    R E V I E W Manu Posted - 03/27/2012 : 10:03:11 For each of the following statements, select whether the statement is true or false for all n × n invertible matrices A, B , C. (Note that you are being asked whether the statement is true or false for all n × n invertible matrices A, B, C, not just for some invertible A, B, C.)1. (ABA^-1)^8 = A^8B^8A^-8 2. B^12 = B^4 ⇒ B^-1 = B^7 3. A^-1 = BC ⇒ C^-1 = AB Is the answer 1-true, 2-false, 3-true is correct. 3   L A T E S T    R E P L I E S    (Newest First) royhaas Posted - 03/28/2012 : 12:25:14 quote:Originally posted by ManuI think B^12 = B^4 is not possible.It is true if B=I. Also, consider the 2X2 complex matrix diag[(1+i)/2]. It's easy to show that B^8=I. There are other examples. Manu Posted - 03/28/2012 : 10:08:21 I think B^12 = B^4 is not possible. royhaas Posted - 03/28/2012 : 08:50:50 Why do you think 2 is false?
