In a few posts, I plan to answer the following questions:

What is the inverse of a 1x1 Matrix?

What is the inverse of a 2x2 Matrix?

What is the inverse of a 3x3 Matrix?

What is the inverse of a 4x4 Matrix?

Back to Mike's Big Data, Data Mining, and Analytics Tutorial

The inverse of a 1x1 matrix is defined as follows. For a 1x1 matrix:

$$ A = \begin{pmatrix}a_{1,1}\end{pmatrix} $$

$$ A^{-1} = \begin{pmatrix}\frac{1}{a_{1,1}} \end {pmatrix} $$

Obviously, if $$a_{1,1} = 0$$ the matrix has no inverse.

The latex code generated for a 1x1 inverse is the following:

Here is a screenshot of the generated file that shows all of the steps for a 1x1 matrix inverse:
