Hey all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm having trouble showing the following point:

if A is an invertible (n×n, real) matrix that commutes with ALL other invertible (n×n, real) matrices, then A is of the form cI, where c is any real number not equal to 0.

Anyone know how to show this?
