Calculate the Inverse of A Matrix
We will show how to calculate the inverse of a matrix by the following example:
Example:
Solution:
Step 1 : Find the determinant.
Step 2 : Swap the elements of the leading diagonal.
Recall: The leading diagonal is from top left to bottom right of the matrix.
Step 3: Change the signs of the elements of the other diagonal.
( Change the signs of 8 and 5 )
Step 4: Divide each element by the determinant.
When a matrix has no inverse it is called a singular matrix.
