Matrix inverses are motivated as a way to solve a linear system. The general algorithm of finding an inverse by row reducing an augmented matrix is described, and then implemented for a 3x3 matrix. Useful facts about inverses are stated and then illustrated with sample 2x2 matrices. (put first: need Example of finding the inverse of a 3-by-3 matrix by row reducing the augmented matrix)
