Unless otherwise specified, assume that all matrices in these exercises are n n. Determine which of the matrices in Exercises 1–10 are invertible. Use as few calculations as possible. Justify your answers.

$$\begin{bmatrix}1 & 3 & 7 & 4\\0 & 5 & 9 & 6\\0 & 0 & 2 & 8\\0 & 0 & 0 & 10\end{bmatrix}$$

Unless otherwise

The matrix is invertible by the inverse matrix theorem, which in this case says it is invertible since it has 4 pivot positions.

Your Answer

Surround your text in *italics* or **bold**, to write a math equation use, for example, $x^2+2x+1=0$ or $$\beta^2-1=0$$

Use LaTeX to type formulas and markdown to format text. See example.
