1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data True or False: If A is an n x n matrix, then the rank of A equals the number of linearly independent row vectors in A. 2. Relevant equations None 3. The attempt at a solution Okay, I know this is a ridiculously easy question, but I'm wondering if there is a catch to it. My inclination is to say this is true. But wouldn't this be true for ANY matrix? Why does the question limit it to an n x n matrix? Are they just being tricky?
