Find the inverse of the following matrix using elementary operations. "A" = (1,2,-2), (-1,3,0),(0,-2,1) - Mathematics

Sum

Find the inverse of the following matrix using elementary operations.

"A" = [(1,2,-2), (-1,3,0),(0,-2,1)]

Solution

We know that
A =I A
or, [(1,2,-2),(-1,3,0),(0,-2,1)] =[(1,0,0),(0,1,0),(0,0,1)]"A"

⇒ [(1,2,-2),(0,5,-2),(0,-2,1)]=[(1,0,0),(1,1,0),(0,0,1)]"A" ...[Applying R2 → R2 + R1]

⇒ [(1,2,-2),(0,1,0),(0,-2,1)]=[(1,0,0),(1,1,2),(0,0,1)]"A" ...[Applying R2 → R2 + 2R3]

⇒[(1,0,-2),(0,1,0),(0,0,1)]=[(-1,-2,-4),(1,1,2),(2,2,5)]"A"
...[Applying R1 → R1 + (-2)R2,R3 → R3 +2R2 ]

⇒[(1,0,0),(0,1,0),(0,0,1)]=[(3,2,6),(1,1,2),(2,2,5)]"A" ...[Applying R1→ R1+2R3 ]

Hence, "A"^(-1) = [(3,2,6),(1,1,2),(2,2,5)]
