**Question 51**:

If possible, using elementary row transformations, find the inverse of the following matrices

**Answer**:

For getting the inverse of the given matrix A by row elementary operations we may write the given matrix as

So, the inverse of A is

(ii)

Since, second row of the matrix A on LHS is containing all zeroes, so we can say that inverse of matrix A does not exist.

(iii)

Hence, is the inverse of given matrix A.
