Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I just want to confirm something. I have [tex]A,B\in M_{nm}(\mathbb{C})[/tex] and I want to prove they are linearly independent. Since they are over the complex field, do I have to prove:

[tex](a_1+ib_1)A+(a_2+ib_2)B=0 \ \Leftrightarrow \ a_1=a_2=b_1=b_2=0[/tex] ?

Thanks.
