Using elementary

Answer :

First of all we need to check whether the matrix is invertible or not. For that-

For the inverse of a matrix A to exist,


Determinant of A ≠ 0


Here A = (2)(1) – (1)(1) = 1


So the matrix is invertible.


Now to find the inverse of the matrix,


We know AA-1 = I


Let’s make augmented matrix-


[ A : I ]



Apply row operation- R1 R1 – R2



Apply row operation- R2 R2 – R1



The matrix so obtained is of the form –


[ I : A-1 ]


Hence inverse of the given matrix-
