contains the line

XL = (XS\X0)' = X0'*XS

When I plugged in numbers from the problem it checks out. Since the second equality looked strange, I tried to prove it. I could not.

With my curiosity peaked, I put random numbers in and found that it is not true in general. More curious than ever, I went back to XS from my problem and played around.

AHA! I found that XS'*XS = the identity matrix but XS*XS' does not.

However, the proof still eludes me.

How 'bout it?
