(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

My textbook has no answers so I was wondering if someone could let me know if I'm right.

The question: A and B are m x n matrices.

Let A = I. Find when B = A.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

What I did seems too easy:

If B ~ A, then A ~ B (this is just a property of similarity)

Since A = I, we can sub in for A

So B = A

Did I just argue myself in circles?
