Inverse of a Square Matrix
A n x n matrix B is the inverse of an n x n matrix A if AB = BA = In . If the inverse exists, we
denote B = A−1 .
To find A−1 :
1. Form the augmented matrix [A|I]
2. Row reduce to get [I|B] if possible
3. Then B = A−1
ex. Find the inverse of A =
1 2
3 4
.
Check AA−1 = I.

If we write a system of equations as AX = B and A−1 exists,
If A−1 does not exist, the system has either no solutions or infinitely many solutions.
