- Homework Statement:
- Find two ##2x2## matrices ##A## and ##B## such that ##AB = 0## but ##BA\neq0##

- Relevant Equations:
- AB=0

One way would be to assume

$$A= \begin{bmatrix}a_1 & a_2\\a_3 & a_4 \end{bmatrix}$$ and $$B=\begin{bmatrix}b_1 & b_2\\b_3 & b_4\end{bmatrix}$$ and then multiply but then you end up with 4 equations and 8 variables, how would that work?

the other way would be to use trial and error, any help would be appreciated.
