Homework Help: Algebra - inverse of complex numbers

  1. Mar 4, 2005 #1
    Hey, i have an algebra question. I have the matrix
    0.3 0.3 0.3
    0.4 0.4 0.5
    0.3 0.2 0.3
    Now, i need to find the eigenvectors for this. However, when i did this, i got complex numbers. I need to find the inverse of this matrix, is there a way to take the inverse a matrix with complex numbers? or did i do something wrong along the way??

    I don't know if u did something wrong along the way,i'm not gonna do the arithmetics for you.I'll just tell you that there is no problem with inverting a matrix from [tex] \mathcal{M}_{3}(\mathbb{C}) [/tex]...As long as the determinant is nonzero,of course...
