I'm trying to prove (as part of a larger proof) that the product of a m x n matrix M with column space R^m and a n x o matrix N with column space R^n, MN, has column space R^m. I'm not sure where to begin. What I'm thinking should be the right approach is to show that any solution to M augmented with a vector v = (a_1, ..., a_m) can be tweaked to be a solution for MN, though I haven't been able to get there. Any suggestions?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
