You can compute all the spot rates there as either the inverse of the rates you already have or as cross rates. You can compute the accompanying forward rates using CIRP (make sure you get the units correct). ALL the FX rates in the southwest part of the matrix (southwest of the cells with 1s) are inverses of the corresponding cells in the northeast part of the rectangle (or matrix). 10...
