(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Show that if [tex]T[/tex] is a square (matrix) and if [tex]T^4[/tex] is the zero matrix then [tex](I-T)^{-1} = I+T+T^2+T^3[/tex]. Generalize.

3. The attempt at a solution

To be honest I don't even know where to begin. Supposedly this is a simple generalization.
