Hi, I have a question about matrices.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If A,B,C are matrices such that AB=AC and A is not equal to zero, does it follow that B=C?

I looked at the associative laws that A(BC)=(AB)C=B(AC), and I think that B and C would be the same. Am I on the right track?
