I am asking for some hints to solve this excercise. Given an invertible skew symmetric matrix $A$, then show that there are invertible matrices $ R, R^T$ such that $R^T A R = \begin{pmatrix} 0 & Id \\ -Id & 0 \end{pmatrix}$, meaning that this is a block matrix that has the identity matrix in two of the four blocks and the lower one with a negative sign.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am completely stuck!
