Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to find the inverse of a square matrix using the inverse key on your graphing calculator. However, not all square matrices can be inverted, and the error message "Singular" will indicate that the matrix is undefined, similar to dividing by zero. By following the steps outlined in this lesson, you will be able to easily find the inverse for most matrices and avoid errors.

Lesson Description:

Learn how to find the inverse of a matrix (using inverse key x^-1) on a graphing calculator. Also, learn what the error 'Singular' means.
