An )T as defining a point in Rn . 2), we define the length of a vector x = (x1 , x2 , . . , xn )T by x = x12 + x22 + · · · + x n2 or x 2 = x, x . We say that two vectors, v, w ∈ Rn are orthogonal if and only if v, w = 0. 13 Learning outcomes 47 A line in Rn is the set of all points (x1 , x2 , . . , xn ) whose position vectors x satisfy a vector equation of the form x = p + tv, t ∈ R, where p is the position vector of one particular point on the line and v is the direction of the line. If we can write x = tv, t ∈ R, then the line goes through the origin.

R times r times Removing the brackets (matrix multiplication is associative) and replacing each central A A−1 = I , the resultant will eventually be AI A−1 = A A−1 = I . To complete the proof, show also that (A−1 )r Ar = I . Therefore, (Ar )−1 = (A−1 )r . 29 Given the sizes of A and B, the matrix AB is m × p, so (AB)T is p × m. Also, AT is n × m and B T is p × n, so the only way these matrices can be multiplied is as B T AT (unless m = p). 30 The (i, j) entry of B T AT is obtained by taking row i of B T , which is column i of B and multiplying each term by the corresponding entry of column j of AT , which is row j of A, and then summing the products: B T AT ij = b1i a j1 + b2i a j2 + .

We then consider all displacement vectors which lie in the plane with initial point at P. If x is the position vector of any point on the plane, then the displacement vector x − p lies in the plane, and x − p is orthogonal to n. Conversely, if the position vector x of a point satisfies n, x − p = 0, then the vector x − p lies in the plane, so the point (with position vector x) is on the plane. ) 42 Matrices and vectors The orthogonality condition means that the position vector of any point on the plane is given by the equation n, x − p = 0.
