# If A = , find A - 1.Using A - 1, solve the followingsystem of linear equations:2x + y + z = 1;X – 2y – z = ;3y – 5z = 9.HINT: Here A = ,X = and B = .

Given,

A = A - 1 = The determinant of matrix A is

|A| = = 2( - 2× - 5 - ( - 1)×3) – (1× - 5 - ( - 1)×0) + (1×3 – ( - 2)×0)

= 2(10 + 3) – ( - 5) + (3)

= 26 + 5 + 3

= 34

|A| ≠ 0

A - 1 is possible.

AT = Adj(A) = A - 1 = A - 1 = Given set of lines are : -

2x + y + z = 1

X – 2y – z = 3y – 5z = 9

Converting the following equations in matrix form,

AX = B

Where A = , X = , B = Pre - multiplying by A - 1

A - 1AX = A - 1B

IX = A - 1B

X = A - 1B  =  =  = = x = 1 , y = , z = - Rate this question :
