(i) The multiplication is performed as follows

$\begin{bmatrix} a &b \\ -b &a \end{bmatrix} \begin{bmatrix} a & -b \\ b &a \end{bmatrix}$

$=\begin{bmatrix} a &b \\ -b &a \end{bmatrix} \times \begin{bmatrix} a & -b \\ b &a \end{bmatrix}$

$=\begin{bmatrix} a\times a+b\times b &a\times -b+b\times a \\ -b\times a+a\times b &-b\times -b+a\times a \end{bmatrix}$

$=\begin{bmatrix} a^{2}+b^{2} & 0 \\ 0 & b^{2}+a^{2} \end{bmatrix}$
