Basic invertible matrix theorem proof.

  1. Feb 11, 2005 #1
    If A and B are invertible matrices, can anyone prove that

    (AB)^(-1) = B^(-1)*A^(-1) ?

    This is not exactly the problem, I have, but my group theory problem is isomorphic to it :).

    With that expression for [itex](AB)^{-1}[/itex], does the following hold?
