The cofactor (C) of Matrix (A) = (det(a) times (A)^-1)t

Cof A=(detAxA^1)t

Enter a matrix for (MatA) AC
shift 4 7 gives det(_
shift 4 3 shows det(a )<-end Paren
= x shows ansx
shift 4 3 shows ansxMatA -1x
= you'll see a Matrix AC to get out
shift 4 8 gives Trn(
shift 4 6 shows Trn(MatAns) =

The Matrix graph shows all the Cofactors

Hi,
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
Good luck!

### How to find adjoint of a matrix

This is a rather involved question and your calculator has pretty basic matrix capabilities.
The adjoint of a matrix is the transpose of the matrix of cofactors. For each element of the original matrix, you must calculate its cofactor and insert it at the same place as the element. Once you get the matrix of cofactors, you take its transpose.
As you see that will not be easy to explain without an example. Please consult a book on linear algebra. And NO, your calculator cannot perform such a feat even for a 3X3 matrix.

### On which calculator can i solve 6*6 matrix

If you want to manipulate 6x6 matrices, you can use one of the CASIO Graphing calculators, such as theCFX-9850GPlus, or the FX-9750G plus.
Graphing calculators from other manufacturers can also handle such matrices. The FX-115ES can handle matrices with dimensions up to 3x3.

### How do i solve a matrix?

What do you mean by "solve a matrix"? Find the inverse? Find the determinant? Find the solution to a system of linear equations? Within limits the fx-115ES can do any of these and more.

The procedures are described in the "Matrix Calculations" section of the manual. If you still have problems, please reply to this post specifying what you want to do.

### How to input numbers to solve a matrix using a casio fx-115es

Press MODE 6 to get into matrix mode. Note: do this only once. If you do it again, it will erase all your matrices. Pick the matrix, set its dimension, then the calculator will put up a screen allowing you to enter/edit the matrix elements. At any time you're in matrix mode, press SHIFT 4 to bring up the matrix menu.

All this is explained in the manual beginning on page E-57. If you've misplaced the manual, you can download a copy from

### How to find the cofactors?

There is no command on the calculator that allows you to do it.
You can use the calculator to evaluate the minors for each element (the determinant of the matrix that is left when you remove the column and the row that have that element as intersection).
Here is an example how to calculate the cofactor of the _11 element of a 3X3 matrix.

1. I defined a 3x3 matrix called b
2. I defined a submatrix by removing the first row and the first column of the b matrix.
3. The submatrix is called min11.
4. Its determinant is the minor of the _11 element of matrix b.
5. The cofactor cof11 of _11 element of matrix b is the product of (-1) to the the power (1+1) and the minor of the _11 element.
6. The cofactor is represented by the last result to the right of ->cof11, that means b22*b33-b23*b32.

### I need to find the cofactor of a matrix using casio fx-115es calculator, i found a post with a solution but at this point: shift 4 3 shows ansxMatA -1x = you'll see a Matrix AC to get out, nothing happens...

Since the largest matrix you can create on the FX-115ES is a 3X3 matrix, I am not sure it is worth it to do it on a calculator.

There is no command on the calculator that allows you to do it.
You can use the calculator to evaluate the minors for each element (the determinant of the matrix that is left when you remove the column and the row that have that element as intersection).
Here is an example how to calculate the cofactor of the _11 element of a 3X3 matrix.

1. I defined a 3x3 matrix called b
2. I defined a submatrix by removing the first row and the first column of the b matrix.
3. The submatrix is called min11.
4. Its determinant is the minor of the _11 element of matrix b.
5. The cofactor cof11 of _11 element of matrix b is the product of (-1) to the the power (1+1) and the minor of the _11 element.
6. The cofactor is represented by the last result to the right of ->cof11, that means b22*b33-b23*b32. The cofactor is a number.
Note: The power of -1 that multiplies the minor of an element is
(-1)^(row number + column number).
coff11=((-1)^2)*det(min11) =det(min11)
cof12=((-1)^(1+2))* det(min12)=-det(min12)
cof13=((-1)^(1+3))*det(min13)= det(min13)
cof21=((-1)^(1+2))*det(min21)= -det(min21)
etc.
