Let A= I - X(X'X)inverseX' to clarify: '=transpose; inverse of quantity (X'X)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. Must A be a square matrix?

2. Must (X'X) be a square matrix?

3. Must X be a square matrix?

4. Show whether matrix A is an idempotent matrix (i.e. that AA=A)

Thanks.
