This matrix is invertible if and only if the determinate is equal to 0. det=a(a*0-1*a)-0(1*0-2*a)+1(1*1-2*a) 0=a(-a)-0(-2a)+1(1-2a) 0=-a^2+1-2a 0=a^2+2a-1 Using quadratic formula a=-1-sqrt(2) and a=-1+sqrt(2)
wow. you are smart. thank you
wait a second - isn't it the other way round? i.e. a matrix is invertible when the determinant is not zero.

You are correct, I read it wrong. So that means the matrix is invertible for all values except for the ones listed above. If there exists a matrix B such that \[AB=BA=I \] I was supposed to write This matrix is not invertible if and only if the determinate is equal to 0. Nice work :D
thanks again
