Im having trouble wrapping my head around this concept Suppose A, B, X are nxn matrices with A, X, and AAX invertible (A  AX)^1 = X^1 * B 1. explain why B is invertible 2. solve for X my answer 1. the product of nxn invertible matrices are invertible. (AAx) is an invertible matrix, which is the product of 2 invertible nxn matrices, X and B. Not the best logic but I have no idea what else to say 2. no idea where to start thanks for the help

Try multiplying on the left by X. Then you can use the statement "the product of two invertible matrices is invertible". Quote:
