Permutable matrices

  1. Oct 3, 2006 #1
    I have this question as homework from my Algebra class:
    A square matrix X is called exchangeable with A if AX=XA.Determine the set of permutable matrices with [​IMG]

    My question is,how do I find that set?I know that a matrix to be permutable all rows and columns must be the same and that a square matrix is composed by the same number of rows and columns.
    Thanks in advance for the help!

    You defined exchangable, not permutable, so who knows?

    You defined what it means for X to be exchachangable *with A*, not what it means for X to be exchangable, or permutable.
