In this page inverse method 3x3 matrix we are going to see how to solve the given linear equation using inversion method.
Formula:
This is the formula that we are going to use to solve any linear equations.
X = A⁻¹ B
Example 1:
Solve the following linear equation by inversion method
2x  y + 3z = 9
x + y + z = 6
x  y + z = 2
Solution:
First we have to write the given equation in the form AX = B. Here X represents the unknown variables. A represent coefficient of the variables and B represents constants.inverse method 3x3 matrix



To solve this, we have to apply the formula X = A⁻¹ B

= 2 [1 + 1] + 1 [1  1] + 3 [1  1]
= 2 [2] + 1 [0] + 3 [2]
= 4 + 0 6
=  2 ≠ 0
Since A is a non singular matrix. A⁻¹ exists.
