NumPy: Compute the inverse of a given matrix

NumPy: Linear Algebra Exercise-12 with Solution

Write a NumPy program compute the inverse of a given matrix.

Sample Solution :

Python Code :

import numpy as np
m = np.array([[1,2],[3,4]])
print("Original matrix:")
result =  np.linalg.inv(m)
print("Inverse of the said matrix:")

Sample Output:

Original matrix:
[[1 2]
 [3 4]]
Inverse of the said matrix:
[[-2.   1. ]
 [ 1.5 -0.5]]
