If I know that [itex]\sum_{k=1}^n a_{ik} = 1[/itex] and [itex]\sum_{j=1}^n b_{kj} = 1[/itex], why is the following permitted?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\sum_{j=1}^n \sum_{k=1}^n a_{ik}b_{kj} = \left(\sum_{j=1}^n b_{kj}\right) \left(\sum_{k=1}^n a_{ik}\right) = 1\cdot 1 = 1[/tex]

Thanks!
