    um you gave a list of numbers that in no way resembles a matrix

    \[\left[\begin{matrix}3 & 0 & k \\ 12 & 8 & 16\\ 4 & 2 & 4\end{matrix}\right]^{-1}\]

    this is just the coefficient matrix\[\left[\begin{matrix}1 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 1 & 2\\ 0 & 0 & k\end{matrix}\right]\]

    Use Gauss-Jordan elimination on \[\left[\begin{matrix}3 & 0 & k & 1 & 0 & 0\\ 12 & 8 & 16 & 0 & 1 & 0\\ 4 & 2 & 4 & 0 & 0 & 1\end{matrix}\right]\] That's how I do it. (There's probably an easier way..)

    this is where im at now\[\left[\begin{matrix}1 & 0 & 0 & 0 & \frac{ -1 }{ 4} & 1 \\ 0 & 1 & 2 & 0 & \frac{ 1 }{ 2 } & \frac{ -3 }{ 2 } \\ 0 & 0 & k & 1 & \frac{ -3 }{ 4 } & 3\end{matrix}\right]\]

    Continue to reduce it using row operations until you have only the identity matrix on the left.

    The last step ought to be subtracting your new R3 from R2.
