## Inverse of Matrix Questions 5

In this page inverse of matrix questions 5 we are going to see solution of question 5 in the topic inverse of matrix.

Question 5

Find the inverse of the following matrix

 3 1 -1 2 -1 2 2 1 -2

Solution: |A|

= 3

 -1 2 1 -2

- 1

 2 2 2 -2

-1

 2 -1 2 1

|A| = 3 [2-2] - 1 [-4-4] - 1 [2-(-2)]

= 3  - 1 [-8] -1 [2+2]

= 3  - 1 [-8] -1 

= 0 + 8 - 4

= 4

|A| = 4 ≠ 0

Since A is a non singular matrix. A⁻¹ exists.

minor of 4

=
 -1 2 1 -2

= [2-2]

= 0

Cofactor of 4

=  + (0)

=    0

= [-4-4]

= (-8)

= -8

Cofactor of 1

=  - (-8)

=    8
