    Solution Preview

    We say that the matrices A and C are row-equivalent if one can be obtained from the other by a succession of operations of the following kinds:

    1-interchanging two rows;

    2-multiplying a row by a non-zero constant;

    3-replacing a row by the sum of it and (a non-zero multiple of) another ...
