That n = q = 1, so that both (AB)C and A(BC) are numbers. 5. (AB)C = > (> akbk,i J ct 1=1 This way of writing the matrices corresponds to calculating A(BC). k=l / tth entry of AB =L 1=1k=1 akbk,lc! 9 A(BC). 40 Chapter 1. 2 provides practice on matrix multiplication. 22, involving graphs, shows a setting where matrix multiplication is a natural and powerful tool. As we saw earlier, matrix multiplication is most definitely not commutative. It may well be possible to multiply A by B but not B by A.

5 (Subspace of IR"). , V is a subspace if when x, y E V , and a E 118, To he closed under multiplication a subspace must contain the zero vector, so that then z+ y E V and arZ E V. For example, a straight line through the origin is a subspace of II22 and of 1F3. A plane through the origin is a subspace of 1183. The set consisting of just the zero vector {ti} is a subspace of any R1, and H8" is a subspace of itself. These last two, {0} and 18", are considered trivial subspaces. Intuitively, it is clear that a line that is a subspace has dimension 1, and a plane that is a subspace has dimension 2.
