The Matrix, Inverse

For matrices there is no such thing as division, you can multiply but can’t divide.  Multiplying by the inverse matrix results in the same thing.    The inverse of a matrix A is A-1 only when:  A × A-1=  A-1 × A = I.   In other words multiplying a matrix by its inverse equals the identity matrix.

Finding the inverse of a 2x2 matrix is simple; there is a formula for that.  The bigger the matrix the bigger the problem.   There are two methods to find the inverse of a matrix: using minors or using elementary row operations (also called the Gauss-Jordan method), both methods are equally tedious.   We’ll be using the latter to find the inverse of matrices of order 3x3 or larger.   For a review of matrix elementary row operations click here.


This is one of the things you really want Symbolab to do the magic.

Here’s an example of a 2x2 matrix - click here:


I neglected to mention that the formula is using the determinant, Symbolab does that too:

Here’s a more advanced example with a 3x3 matrix - click here:


Let’s zoom into the row operations:


…told you it’s no fun

Here’s the link to an example with a 4x4 matrix, not for the weakhearted - click here.


Cheers,
