Unformatted text preview: tion of Ax = b is x = A−1 b.
We use the formula for the inverse to compute: x = A−1 b = 1
det A n
k =1 bk Ck 1
k =1 bk Ckj .
On the other hand, expanding the determinant of Ab,j along
the j th column yields the same formula.
Hence, xj = Outline The Classical Adjoint A Formula for the Inverse of a Matrix Example Example
