How do I get the right side of the equation to equal the left side?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

\begin{bmatrix}

1 & 0 \\

0 & 1

\end{bmatrix} =

\begin{bmatrix}

a & 1 \\

1 & 1

\end{bmatrix}

[/tex]

I tried multiplying the first row by 0 to get rid of a is this is the right first step?
