## Main Question or Discussion Point

A is orthogonal if the A[itex]^{-1}[/itex] = A[itex]^{T}[/itex].

Thus, AA[itex]^{T}[/itex] = I.

However, is the statement A is orthogonal equivalent to A[itex]^{2}[/itex]=I.

I don't think the statements are equivalent, but it comes from a test. Thus, I'd hope the test is correct.
