Ok, maybe a dumb question, but anyway:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

if I have some matrices equation like this:

AB = BC

if I want to multiply both sides by some matrix Z can I stick it in the middle?

AZB = BZC

I know I can do these two:

ABZ = BCZ

ZAB = ZBC

but can I do the middle too?

Thanks!
