Let and let be an algebraically closed field with characteristic 0 or greater than . We show that if and satisfy , then are simultaneously triangularizable. Let be a reduced ring such that is not a zero divisor and let be a generic matrix over ; we show that is the sole solution of . Let be a commutative ring with unity; let be similar to such that, for every is not a zero divisor. If is a nilpotent solution of where , then .
