In Hamilton's text I ran across the following statement: if $X$ includes a constant then the linear projection of $aY+b$ is $aP(Y\mid X)+b$ where $P(Y\mid X)$ is the linear projection of $y$ on $x$. I’m having trouble proving this. Specifically this implies that if $X$ has a constant then $E(X’)E(XX’)X=I$ which I don’t see.
