This is a very beautiful sample problem from ISI MStat PSB 2007 Problem 2 based on Rank of a matrix. Let's give it a try !!

Let and be real matrices such that and

Suppose that is invertible. Show that rank(A)=rank(B).

Matrix Multiplication

Inverse of a matrix

Rank of a matrix

Here it is given that is invertible which implies it's a non-singular matrix .

Now observe that , as

Again , as .

Now we know that for non-singular matrix M and another matrix N , . We will use it to get that

and .

And it's also known that . Hence (Proved) .

Try to prove the same using inequalities involving rank of a matrix.
