Another Linear Algebra Question

    I am having to do a proof on a problem and am not really seeing it for some reason. Maybe it's because I have been doing the homework for so long.

    Prove that if A is nonsingular then A^T is nonsingular and

    (A^T)^-1 = (A^-1)^T

    Hint: (AB)^T = B^T*A^T

    I understand the hint, but I cant seem to get an image of the actual problem.

    Can anyone help me?

    Start from [itex](A^{-1}A)^T=I[/itex].
