Is it possible to find an elementary matrix E such th

Please provethe statements shown below:
1. If the elementary matrix E results from performing a certain row operation on an identity matrix Im and if A is an m x n matrix, then the product EA is the matrix that results when this same roe operation is performed on A.
2. Every elementary matrix is invertible, and the invers

I am given the set of infinite-by-infinite matrices with real entries that have only finitely many nonzero entries. Also, the matrix has entries a_ij, where i and j are natural numbers and there is a natural number n such that a_ij = 0 if i >= n or j >= n.
I need to understand how to show that this set of matrices is a ring w
