Matrix theory

  1. Oct 2, 2008 #1
    Can someone explain why if an invertible matrix A has det = 1 and all integer entries, its inverse also has all integer entries? det(A) = 1 means that if you apply the big formula (permutations) the sums of the entries add up to 1. But what does that have to with having integers in its inverse?
