Unformatted text preview: A¡1 exists detÔAÕ 0, can be found using row reduction (also called Gaussian elimination) on the augmented matrix ÖA| I×. In linear algebra, it is learned that and A¡1 There are three elementary row operations: 1. Interchange two rows: Ri 2. Multiply a row by a nonzero scalar: αRi , α 3. Rj . 0. Add a multiple of one row to another row: Ri αRj . 14 / 17 Example If A ab , then A¡1 cd provided that det A 1 ad ¡ bc ad ¡ bc d ¡c ¡b a , 0. If A is 3 ¢ 3 or larger, use elementary row operations to reduce ÖA| I× to a matrix of the form ÖI| B×. When this process is successful, B A¡1 . Otherwise, A is singular (not invertible).
