1. In order to row reduce the 2x2 matrix A all the way to the identity matrix we had to perform the following elementary row operations:
-subtract row2 from row1
-multiply row1 by -1
-subtract 3*row1 from row2
-multiply row2 by -1
-subtract 2*row2 from row1
2. Let A and B be two invertible matrices. Which of the following statement is FALSE?
a) (AB)-1 = B-1 A-1
b) If A is orthogonal (AAT= I), then det(A)=1
c) ACT=det(A)I (where C is the cofactor matrix of A)
d) det(A)det(A−1) = 1
For #2, the answers a and c were already tried and found to be incorrect
