1
4.7 Identity and Inverse Matrices

2
What is an identity? In math the identity is the number you multiply by to have equivalent numbers. For multiplication it is one. 5 * 1 = 5, of course. How is this useful? If you need to have a denominator of 40 in the fraction

3
What is an inverse? The inverse is a number when multiplied by another number equals one.

4
The identity matrix is a square matrix with one down the diagonals In a 2 X 2In a 3 X 3

5
Find the matrices that when multiply together are the identity matrix. How do we find the inverse?

6
Find the inverse Find the determinant of 6 – ( - 8) = 14 We will flip the diagonal of top left and bottom right, then change the signs the bottom left to top right diagonal.

7
Putting the part together Take the determinant and put it under one and multiply it by the moved matrix.

8
Lets see if it works

9
Can there be matrices without inverses? Yes, when the determinate equals zero. Since a fraction can not have zero for a denominator. There would be no inverse.
