MINVERSE: Excel Formulae Explained

How do you use MINVERSE in Excel?

MINVERSE is a built-in Excel function that calculates the inverse of a matrix. The syntax for MINVERSE is:

=MINVERSE(array)

Where "array" is the matrix to be inverted.

For example, if you have a matrix A that looks like this:

A=[1 2 3 4; 5 6 7 8]

You can use MINVERSE to calculate the inverse of A like this:

=MINVERSE(A)

This will return the inverse matrix:

A=[-1/2 0 1/2; 1/2 1/2 -1/2]

What is the syntax of MINVERSE in Excel?

MINVERSE is a built-in function in Excel that takes a matrix as an input and returns the inverse of the matrix. The syntax of the MINVERSE function is: MINVERSE(array)

What is an example of how to use MINVERSE in Excel?

MINVERSE is a function in Excel that takes a matrix and finds the inverse of that matrix. An example of how to use MINVERSE in Excel would be to find the inverse of a matrix that is used to calculate a company's revenue over a period of time. The matrix would have columns for each month and rows for each product. The MINVERSE function would be used to find the inverse of the matrix in order to calculate the company's revenue for each product over each month.

When should you not use MINVERSE in Excel?

MINVERSE is a built-in function in Excel that calculates the inverse of a matrix. The function can be used to solve systems of linear equations, but there are some cases when it should not be used. First, the matrix must be square, meaning that it must have the same number of rows and columns. Second, the determinant of the matrix must be nonzero. If either of these conditions is not met, the MINVERSE function will return an error.

What are some similar formulae to MINVERSE in Excel?

MINVERSE is the inverse of a matrix. The inverse of a matrix is a matrix that when multiplied by the original matrix results in the identity matrix. The inverse matrix is found by using the following formula:

A-1 = 1/det(A) Inverse Matrix

Where A is the original matrix and det(A) is the determinant of the matrix. The determinant of a matrix is found by using the following formula:

det(A) = |A| = (A1) (A2) (A3) … (An)

Where A is the matrix, and A1, A2, A3, …, An are the individual matrix elements.

Some similar formulae to MINVERSE in Excel are the TRANSPOSE and INVERT functions. The TRANSPOSE function transforms a matrix from row-major to column-major order, and the INVERT function inverts a matrix.
