 T O P I C    R E V I E W Manu Posted - 03/27/2012 : 09:57:11 For each of the following statements, select whether the statement is true or false for all n × n matrices A, B , C. (Note that you are being asked whether the statement is true or false for all n × n matrices A, B, C, not just for some A, B, C.)1. (2 A - 8 B)(2 A + 8 B) = 4 A^2 - 64 B^2 2. A(2 I - 8 BA) = (2 I - 8 AB)A3. A ≠ 0 and AB = A ⇒ B = I4. (-2 I + AA^T)^ T = -2 I + AA^TI think the answer is 1-true, 2-false, 3-true, 4-false.Is it correct or wrong. 1   L A T E S T    R E P L I E S    (Newest First) royhaas Posted - 03/27/2012 : 10:09:00 1. This appears to require commutativity.2. Check associativity.3. What if A doesn't have an inverse?4. Be careful with transpositions.
