Now consider the matrix C = 1 8  2 6 2 7 5 3 5 7 1 . Chapter 1 Lecture Notes MAT188H1F Lec03 Burbulla Chapter 1 Matrix Inverses CA = I We have CA = 1 8  2 6 2 7 5 3 5 7 1 2 1 1 1 1 1 3 2 4 = 1 8 8 0 0 0 8 0 0 0 8 = I , as you may check. The matrix C can be used to solve the system of equations in a different way: AX = B C ( AX ) = CB ( CA ) X = CB IX = CB X = CB . That is, the solution to the system is X = 1 8  2 6 2 7 5 3 5 7 1 1 6 13 = 1 8 8 16 24 = 1 2 3 . Chapter 1 Lecture Notes MAT188H1F Lec03 Burbulla Chapter 1 Matrix Inverses The Inverse of a Matrix If A is an n n matrix and C is another n n matrix such that CA = I and AC = I , then C is called the inverse of A , and we write C = A 1 . Of course, A is also the inverse of C ; you could just as well write A = C 1 . If a matrix has an inverse, it is said to be invertible. Warning: not all matrices are invertible. Negative powers of an invertible matrix are defined as follows: A k = ( A 1 ) k , if k > . Chapter 1 Lecture Notes MAT188H1F Lec03 Burbulla Chapter 1 Matrix Inverses The Gaussian Algorithm for Finding Matrix Inverses How can you find the inverse of a matrix, A ? One way is to use row reduction on the augmented matrix ( A  I ) . Reduce the left side...
