In general, this is a complicated process. The matrix you start with must be a square matrix; the inverse will also be square, and of the same size.

When you multiply a matrix by it's inverse, the result is the 'identity matrix' - another matrix of the same size as the first two. It has a diagonal row of 1's from top left to bottom right, and 0's everywhere else.

The concept of the inverse in matrix arithmetic is similar to a reciprocal in multiplication:

3 x 3-1 = 3 x 1/3 = 1

When you multiply a number by it's reciprocal, you get '1'. In matrix math,

AA-1 = I

The identity matrix 'I' corresponds to the number 1.

It is useful to learn how to find the inverse of a matrix with a graphing calculator, so that you can check your answer.

How do you find a variable in a matrix if there is no inverse?

The fact that the matrix does not have an inverse does not necessarily mean that none of the variables can be found.


How to find the inverse of a symmetric matrix?

You can factorize the matrix using LU or LDLT factorization algorithm. inverse of a diagonal matrix (D) is really simple. To find the inverse of L, which is a lower triangular matrix, you can find the answer in this link.www.mcs.csueastbay.edu/~malek/TeX/Triangle.pdfSince (A T )-1 = (A-1 )T for all matrix, you'll just have to find inverse of L and D.
