# Why if unity is not an eigeinvalue of A then (I - A) is nonsingular?

Seems so obvious but I can't get it:

If unity is not an eigenvalue of $A$, then $(I - A)$ is nonsingular.

How can I prove this?

It is the definition, when $(I-A)$ is singular it means $(1 \cdot I -A)$ has a non trivial kernel, which means there is a $v\neq 0$ such that $$(I-A)v=0$$ which would mean, that $A$ has the eigenvalue 1.
Let $1$ not be an eigenvalue of $A$ but $I-A$ is singular.
\begin{align} \det(A-\lambda I)&=0\\ \text{We Know,}\\ \det(A-I)&=0\\ \end{align} Thus, $1$ is an eigenvalue of $A$.
