  2. a. For an invertiblen×n matrixA and an arbitraryn×n matrix B, show that rref[A∣AB]=[In∣B]rref[A∣AB]=[In∣B].Hint: The left part ofrref[A∣AB] is rref(A)=In. Write rref [A∣AB]=[In∣M]; we have to show thatM=B . To demonstrate this, note that the columns of matrix [B-In]are in the kernel of[A∣AB] and therefore in the kernel of [In∣M].b. What does the formula rref[A∣AB]=[In∣B]tell you if B=A-1
