Hi, I'm having some difficulty with the following, please help.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose A in R^{nxn} (n>3) is a tridiagonal matrix where Q is an orthogonal matrix and R is an upper-triangular matrix such that A=QR .

Must RQ be a tridiagonal matrix?

If yes, give a proof; otherwise, construct a counterexample.
