For all AEFmxn). 4 A+(-A)=Om,n (forallAEF mxn ). These are almost obvious. To provide a formal proof of any of them, one must fall back on the meaning of a statement that two matrices are equal (cf. remark (g) in §12). 2. 30 LINEAR ALGEBRA Let A = [tXik]mxn, B = [Pik]mxn be arbitrary matrices in Fmxn. Then both A + Band B + A are m x n matrices. Further, for all relevant i, k, (i, k)th entry of A + B = tXik + Pik = (i, k)th entry of B + A. Hence A + B = B + A ; and this proves the result. e. by showing that the two matrices alleged to be equal are of the same type and have equal (i, k)th entries for all relevant i, k.

Ak - 1, Ak are all nonsingular matrices 10 F n x n> then A 1A 2 ... Ak-1A k is also nonsingular, and (A1A2 ... Ak_1Ak)-1 = Ak-1Ak-_\ .. ·A21Al1. It remains to point out that certain simplifications and lines of argument are open to us when the nonsingularity of a matrix is given. For example, suppose we know that AB = AC, (*) A, B, C being matrices. In §16 we remarked that, in general, one may not jump to the conclusion that B = C. However, if A is given to be nonsingular, we can premultiply both sides of(*) by A -1 to obtain A -1 AB = A -1 AC, and hence in this special case the conclusion B = C legitimately emerges.

Partitioned by dividing lines occurring in the same places in both matrices), so that corresponding blocks in the two matrices are of the same type. g. we might have where, for eachj, Xj is of the same type as lj. One readily sees in any such case the sum A + B is obtainable by adding "blockwise". g. in the above specific case It is equally obvious that one can work blockwise in multiplying a partitioned matrix by a scalar or in subtracting two identically partitioned matrices of the same type.
