Math 120 SP08 SBrodnick 1 1 3.3 : Matrix Inversion 2 3.3: Matrix Inversion * Inverse of a Matrix : Inverse of n x n matrix A is n x n matrix A -1 , where A A -1 = A -1 A = I * If A doesn’t have an inverse, it’s singular * Finding Inverse of a Square Matrix : * Put matrix on the left and I on the right * Use row operations to make left side look like I * What’s left on right side is the inverse * If can’t get I on left side, matrix is singular (n x n identity matrix) 3 * In calculator: [A] -1 * Calculator error SingularMat : No Inverse * Another way to find inverse of a 2 x 2
