# matrix, construct a 2×2 matrix B such that AB is the zero matrix. help please?

let A= first row [3 -6] second row [-1 2]

construct a 2×2 matrix B such that AB is the zero matrix. Use two different nonzero columns for B.

when i get zero its only 2 and the other 2 numbers aren’t. I just can’t figure out how to get AB to be all 0.

• matrix multiplication

let B

=(a,b)

(c,d)

then

3a-6c=0

3b-6d=0

-a+2c=0

-b+2d=0

a=2c

b=2d

choose any c, d

then B

• For all genuine numbers a and b, a*b = 0 if and provided that a = 0 or b = 0. regrettably, the analogous effect for matrices does no longer carry. here’s a trouble-free counterexample. permit A be first matrix and B the 2nd. [ a million 0 ][ 0 0 ]..=.[ 0 0 ] [ 0 0 ][ 0 a million ]…..[ 0 0 ] Then AB = 0 and A ? 0 yet B ? 0. notice: A is invertible if and provided that the determinant of A is nonzero. the undeniable fact that the Matrix A is nonzero does no longer mean that the Determinant is nonzero. so we will not end that A is invertible.
