I am having difficulty doing this. I know most of the question involve the transpose but i do not know what to do Thanks for any help

Solve for the matrix X in the following equations.

(a) (B^-1X)^TC^-1 = (CB)^-1

(b) [2 1] [4 1 0] [0 0]

[1 4]X^T = -4[2 2 5] + [0 3]X^T

a) (B^-1X)^TC^-1 = X^T(B^-1)^T(CB)^-1 = B^-1C^-1

mult by C on right then mult by B^T

X^T(B^-1^T)B^T = X^T(B^-1B)^T = X^T = B^-1B^T

(X^T)^T = X = B(B^-1)T

b) Note first of all that the matrix X^T must be a 3x2 matrix in order to match the given matrices. Write X^T as

x11 x21 x31

x21 x22 x23

and carry out the matrix multiplication. You'll get 6 equations in 6 unknowns which you can solve for the elements of X.
