LetAbe ann x nmatrix. Show that if A^{2}=0 thenI - Ais non-singular and(I - A)^{-1}= I + A

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Ok, so I started off with finding the general form of a 2x2 matrix which when squared gives a zero matrix, and all the properties above are satisfied. But how do Ishowthat for an n x n matrix? Please help me out.
