Vocabulary
A square matrix is a matrix with the same number of
columns as rows.
Multiplicative Identity Matrix is an n x n square matrix with
1’s along the main diagonal and 0’s elsewhere.

Multiplicative Inverse of a Matrix
If A and B are n x n matrices, and AB = BA = 1, then
B is the multiplicative inverse of A, written A-1
AA-1 = A-1 A = 1
Verifying Inverses
Show that matrices A and B are multiplicative inverses.

Finding an Inverse Matrix
Determine whether each matrix has an inverse. If it does,
find it.

ad – bc = (12)(3) – (4)(9)
Find det X.
Simplify.

Real World Example
In a city with a stable group of 45,000 households, 25,000
households use long distance carrier A, and 20,000 use long distance
carrier B. Records show that over a 1-year period, 84% of the
households remain with carrier A, while 16% switch to B. 93% of the
households using B stay with B, while 7% switch to A.
a. Write a matrix to represent the changes in long distance carriers.
