If the rows of A are linearly dependent, are the rows of AB also linearly dependent? Justify answer. I don't completely understand this question because (so far) my instructor and my text book has not discussed what it means for rows to be linearly dependent. There is a similar question in my text book that asked "if the columns of B are linearly dependent, show that the columns of AB are also." Does this have something to with transverses? Can I just think about it the same way I have been with columns or does "row" dependencs mean something different?
