Is there a way without using the algorithm to find A(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{-1}of a square matrix greater than 2x2?

The question we are given in the books is:

[-25 -9 -27]

[536 185 537]

[154 52 143]

We are asked to find A^{-1}of the second and third column without computing the first column.

(Sorry about the format...I couldn't figure out how to use the brackets on this one.)

Thanks.
