# Let A and B be square matrices of order n over ℝProve or disprove that the product A B is a diagonal matrix of order n over ℝ if B is a diagonal matrix.

To determine

Whether the product AB is a diagonal matrix of order n over if B is a diagonal matrix.

Explanation

Given information:

A and B are diagonal matrices of order n over and B is a diagonal matrix.

Formula used:

Definition: Matrix multiplication

The product of m×n matrix A over and n×p matrix B over is m×p matrix C=AB, where the element cij in row i and column j of AB is found by using the elements in row i of A, and the elements in column j of B in the following manner:
