c ± Kendra Kilmer August 18, 2011 Section 2.6 - The Inverse of a Square Matrix Definition: Let A be a square matrix of size n . A square matrix A - 1 of size n such that is called the inverse of A . Example 1: Show that the matrix A = ± 1 2 3 4 ² has as its inverse A - 1 = ± - 2 1 3 / 2 - 1 / 2 ² Definition: Every square matrix does not have an inverse. We say that a matrix is singular if it does not have an inverse. If it does have an inverse, we say that it is nonsingular . You are not responsible for calculating inverses by hand. In the next example, I will show you how to find the inverse of a matrix on the calculator along with matrix multiplication. Example 2: Given A = 1 2 5 - 2 4 1 1 3 2 B = 1 - 3 0 5 0 1 - 2 8 3 Compute: a) AB b) A - 1 Example 3: Find a , b , and c in the following matrix equation. ± -
