Both matrices will probably contain only zeros and ones.

Use only 1's and 0's for simplicity. Anyway I suspect that any other example will be a multiple or something simply related to such a matrix.

Instead of thinking about 4X4 matrices yet, attack a simpler case - 2X2 matrices. You can surely find several 2X2 matrices that have your property.

Then does that suggest a plan for extending to construction of suitable 3X3 matrices? If you can do that you will probably be able to do it for 4X4 too.

not so:Both matrices will probably contain only zeros and ones.

[1 1][2 -1]....[1 0]

[1 2][-1 1] = [0 1]

Halls of Ivy: isn't this true for matrices with determinant ± 1?

Can you find a 4x4 matrix with integer entries whose determinant is 1??i cant find 4x4 this matrix

can you show me one please

Where did you leave it last? Retrace your steps, and you may find it... or:

Start with the 4x4 identity, and apply transformations to the rows that preserve the value of

the determinant.
