Are matrices A and B inverses? Look in comments to see matrices.

    just multiply them ,if your gona get identity matrix then yes they are inverse else no

    \[A*A^{-1}=I\]

    What do you mean by "identity matrix"

    \(\bf I = \left[ \begin{matrix} 1&0\\ 0&1 \end{matrix}\right]\)

    And for 2x2 matrices only: \[A = \left[\begin{matrix}a & b \\ c & d\end{matrix}\right]\] \[A^{-1} = \frac{ 1 }{ detA } \left[\begin{matrix}d & -b \\ -c & a\end{matrix}\right]\]

    therefore it is not an inverse since its not all the same?

    \( A \times B = \left[ \begin{matrix} 1&0\\ 0&1 \end{matrix}\right] = \textit{I} \implies B = A^{-1}; A = B^{-1}\)

    5*-7=-35 -18*2=-36 therefore the answer is no? right?
