When you are asking questions of this type I recommend that you think
of a concrete example. In fact, try to think of a simple concrete
example. For example
A= [1 1 1] --- 1x3 of rank 1
B= [1 2 3] --- 1x3 of rank 1

or

A=[1 1 1]^T --- 3x1 of rank 1
B=[1 2 3]^T --- 3x1 of rank 1

I'm not sure what question you're asking, but whatever question it is
these examples should give you an answer.
