Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.31. No solution with a row that has all zero entries on the left, but nonzero entry on right => system is inconsistent 2. Exactly one solution After elementary row operations, no. of rows = no. of unknowns (/columns) => system is consistent 3. Infinitely many solution. After elementary row operations, no. of rows < no. of unknowns => system is consistent

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but...yeah I suppose because I have seen some matrices that had a row of zeros on the left but with a nonzero on the right that is an inconsistent system .. How is it possible to make a mistake when it's so hard to spot one? I mean...I could've used different operations on the matrix. The combinations are everywhere.

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Gaussian > Make the left an upper triangular matrix Jordan > Make the left an identity matrix GaussianJordan => Make it an upper triangular matrix, then further make it an identity matrix. That's what GaussanJordan is! Jordon helps you to get the answer by matching the left and the right That is for the row [1 0  1/7], you can tell immediately that x = 1/7 It's just the same as doing Gaussian elimination then back substitution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okkk... Let A and B be n x n matrices. Show that if AB is nonsingular then A and B must be nonsingular.(Hint Use Theorem 2.9) Theorem 2.9 states that the homogeneous system of n linear equations in n unknowns Ax = 0 has a nontrivial solution if and only if A is singular.

UsukiDoll
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There's a contradiction....namely because if Matrix A is singular, then the inverse of Matrix A does NOT exist which means that AB doesn't exist as well.

UsukiDoll
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It also has something to do with the homogenous system as well.

UsukiDoll
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because basically a homogeneous system is always consistent. However, a homogeneous system's solution is always 0 and it's a trivial solution. Nontrivial solution in a homogenous system means that the solution IS NOT 0 at all!

UsukiDoll
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, what is given before proving is that A and B are n x n matrices A and B must be nonsingular AB is also nonsingular Theorem 2.9

UsukiDoll
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If a matrix is nonsingular, an inverse exists...so Theorem 2.9 doesn't work at all

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Forgive me, I don't understand the part "... which means that AB doesn't exist as well" I understand if A is singular, A^(1) doesn't exist, but not the which means part..

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yeah this is just a rough draft of it

UsukiDoll
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm if A is nonsingular, an inverse exists. I remember back from Theorem 1.5 that it was AB=BA=In. B is the inverse of A. hmmm..if A is singular, yes the inverse doesn't exist. Let's have B = the inverse of A. Matrix A is singular Inverse doesn't exist so B doesn't exist AB is impossible to achieve unless A is nonsingular

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Hmm.. \[AA^{1} = A^{1}A=I\]provided that \(A^{1}\) exists...  But what about \(B \ne A^{1}\)? And we also have to show that B is also nonsingular?!

UsukiDoll
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know. What if we let A be the inverse of B?

UsukiDoll
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that would be Matrix B A = B^1 BB^1 = identity matrix

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3What if \(A \ne B^{1}\) and \(B \ne A^{1}\) ?

UsukiDoll
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think that the only way that occurs is if A and B are singular

Callisto
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Hmm.. I'm sorry that I don't know how to do it :( @hartnn Would you mind giving a hand here? The problem we are discussing now is: Let A and B be n x n matrices. Show that if AB is nonsingular then A and B must be nonsingular.(Hint Use Theorem 2.9) Theorem 2.9 states that the homogeneous system of n linear equations in n unknowns Ax = 0 has a nontrivial solution if and only if A is singular.
