Let A by an nxn non-singular matrix, then A-1 is the inverse of A. Now

(A-1 )-1 =A

So the answer is yes.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

No. A square matrix has an inverse if and only if its determinant is nonzero.

What does rotation mean in termsof inverse of orthogonal matrix?

The inverse of a rotation matrix represents a rotation in the opposite direction, by the same angle, about the same axis. Since M-1M = I, M-1(Mv) = v. Thus, any matrix inverse will "undo" the transformation of the original matrix.
