V = Mnxn is a space vector formed by all the square matrices.

Is W = {A in Mnxn : A^x = A} a subspace of V?


  • Linear Algebra -

    No, because if A is in W, then

    B = lambda A

    is not in W if lambda is not equal to 1:

    A^x = A --->

    B^x = lambda^x A^x = lambda^x A =

    labda^(x-1) B

    which is not equal to B for general lambda.
