comment Solve for n: $\varphi(2n)=\varphi(3n)$
@lhf I think you may be right, but I don't know how to show it... My math above used the assumption that if $(3,n)=3$, then $\varphi(3n)=\varphi(3^2n)=\varphi(3^2)\varphi(n)=3(3-1)\varphi(n)$... but now I see that I didn't factor the $3$ out of the $n$, so I should probably have $\varphi(n/3)$ instead...

All I was taught was that it's multiplicative.

@labbhattacharjee Why is it not called "congruence" then, not "incongruence"?

Does this mean that there are 11 different equivalence classes?

answered Let $ABC$ be a well-defined product of matrices. Suppose that $A,C$ are both invertible. Prove that $rank(ABC)=rank(B)$.

@AgustíRoig Ahh.. I think I see how I might do this, then... If $A$ and $C$ are invertible, they can be reduced to $I$... and $I$ has the same rank as $A$ and $C$. So if I have the product $I_mBI_n$, then I get $B$...

@AgustíRoig What do you mean? "rank" is the dimension of the column space... so if $A$ and $C$ are invertible, and $A$ is an $m\times m$ matrix, then the columns of $A$ are linearly independent, meaning the dimensions of the column space is $m$, thus the rank of $A$ is $m$... simmilarly for $C$.

comment Multiplying matrices with left and right inverses
@BISHD Well, I never learned anything about the kernel... so I have no idea what to do with your suggestion, sorry

comment Multiplying matrices with left and right inverses
@BISHD There's no way I can determine this without knowing the components of the matrix... This is a general proof knowing only that the columns are linearly independent.

comment Multiplying matrices with left and right inverses
What is ker? I've never learned this term. Is it synonymous with the null space?
