Check the calculator with a simple 2X2 matrix that you can invert by hand easily and see if it gives you the wrong inverse for it. It is also possible that YOU made the mistake.

Sorry, but your matrices do not make sense.If you multiply a matrix by a scalar the resulting (product) matrix has exactly the same structure as the one you multiplied : (mXn) times a yields another (mXn) matrix.

Be it as it may, when you multiply a matrix by a scalar, you obtain the product by multiplying every element of the original matrix by the scalar.

Here is a screen capture showing the multiplication of a 2X2 matrix by a scalar.

Note: I have noticed that screen captures I insert in my answers are sometimes deleted (by FixYa?). So if you do not see a picture it has nothing to do with me.

Matrix multiplication is defined only when the width of the first matrix is equal to the height of the second. You can multiply a 2x2 matrix by a 1x2 matrix or multiply a 2x1 matrix by a 2x2 matrix, but you cannot multiply a 2x2 matrix by a 2x1 matrix.

Here is enough to get you started and a little more.

Read the post ant consult your calculator manual. The screen captures below may not look exactly as your calculator but the steps are identical.

**A. Define a matrix (Create it)**

**B Operations on matrices**

Once you have one matrix, you can do operations on it: Calculate the determinant (if matrix is square), calculate its inverse, transpose, augment it, fill it, etc..

[OPTN][F2:MAT] (MAT) [Alpha] A ^2 [EXE]

D. Product of two compatible matrices MatAXMatB

[OPTN][F2:MAT] (MAT) [Alpha] A [*] (MAT) [ALPHA] B [EXE]

Part E Invert a (square, non singular) matrix that was already defined.

Press [OPTN] [F2:Mat] to open a screen similar to the one in capture above

Press [F1:Mat] to have identifier Mat displayed.

Enter the name of the matrix by pressing [ALPHA] A, for example.

Press [SHIFT] [ ) ] activate the (x^-1) key.

This is what you might see (with parentheses and without).

Press [EXE] button to calculate the inverse.

Read the post ant consult your calculator manual. The screen captures below may not look exactly as your calculator but the steps are identical.

- Turn calculator ON.
- Press Menu,select the MAT icon and press [EXE]
- You see a list of possible matrix labels (A, B, C,D,E,F)
- All that have not been created have a "none" to their right
- Highlight a matrix name and press the right arrow. Where there was "none" , you have a template 0x0.
- That is where you specify the dimensions (mxn). example. 2x2
- Enter the first dimension and press [EXE]
- Enter the 2nd dimension and press [EXE]
- A matrix template opens where you enter the coefficients left to right and up down.
- After each coefficient press [EXE]. Cursor moves to the next coefficient, etc.

Once you have one matrix, you can do operations on it: Calculate the determinant (if matrix is square), calculate its inverse, transpose, augment it, fill it, etc..

- These operations are accessed as follows.
- Quit the matrix editor by pressing [Menu] and selecting the [Run] application.
- Press [OPTN][F2:MAT]
- You have the menus Mat,M(atrix)->L(ist), Det(erminant), Trn (transpose), Aug(ment) ->, Iden(tity),Dim(ension) Fill

- You press the [OPTN][F2:MAT] key sequence (just above)
- Press [F3:Det]; the command
**det**is displayed on screen. - Press [F1:Mat] the identifier
**Mat**is displayed. - Press [ALPHA] A; screen display
**det Mat A**. - Press [EXE] to get the value of the determinant.

[OPTN][F2:MAT] (MAT) [Alpha] A ^2 [EXE]

D. Product of two compatible matrices MatAXMatB

[OPTN][F2:MAT] (MAT) [Alpha] A [*] (MAT) [ALPHA] B [EXE]

Part E Invert a (square, non singular) matrix that was already defined.

When you press MODE 6 for Matrix, you're clearing any previously entered matrices. So, you're clearing MatA when you go to enter MatB.

Instead, after entering MatA press SHIFT 4 to bring up the Matrix menu, press 1 for DIM, press 2 for MatB, press 5 for 2x2, and enter the data.

Hello,

**I will assume you are familiar with the basic concepts of matrix algebra**.

Turn calculator [ON]

Press [MODE][6:MATRIX]. Select the matrix you want: MatA, MatB, Matc

Let us assume you select 1: MatA.

MatA (mxn) sceen: there you specify the dimensions of the matrix, the number of rows, and the number of columns. Press 5 for a 2x2 matrix.

The matrix entry screen shows, a rectangle is highlighted. Enter there the a_11 coefficient, exemple 1.

1 [ENTER]. Highlight moves to a_12 ;

1 [ENTER] highlight moves to a_21

1 [ENTER] highlight moves to a_22

2 [ENTER] Highlight stays on a_22.

Matrix is defined. The values I used are arbitrary. Enter your own.

Suppose you want to calculate the determinant of MatA

Press [SHIFT][MATRIX][7:det][SHIFT][MATRIX][3:MatA] [)] [=]

Now you want to calculate the square of matA.

Press [SHIFT][MATRIX][3:MatA] [x^2][=]

A 2x2 matrix is displayed. It is MatA[^2].

If you define MatA, MatB, MatC y

Hello,

The error may be due to the key you used to signifie inverse. It says in the manual that you should use the key x^-1 not the one used to input general powers.

Here is screen capture from the Appendix to the manual. The picture shows the sequence of keys to press to obtain the inverse of a 2x2 matrix. It is taken from page 41 of Appendix

The matrix used in the exemple is

a_11=2 a_12=1 a_21=1 a_22=2

Here is the link to download the manual and the appendix

Hope it helps

Hello,

The so-called (2x1) matrix is not a matrix. It is a vector.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

You cannot calculate the inverse of an arbitrary matrix. It must be a square matrix (nxn) with non zero determinant. Make sure dimensions m and n are equal. (2x2), (3x3)

To calculate its determinant [Shift][MATRIX] [7:det] [SHIFT][MATRIX][3:MatA] close the right parenthesis and [=].

If determinant is different from zero then you can calculate its inverse.

If matrix MatA has already been defined, you calculate its inverse as follows;

[SHIFT][MATRIX][3:MatA] [X^-1][=]. Use the X to -1 power , the one under [MODE].

For well-behaved matrices you calculate the inverse directly without worrying about the determinant.

Hope it helps.
