Hello, I just have a general question regarding if my analysis of the relationship of system of equations and the matrices constructed involved in solving them.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If systems of equations can be solved through matrices (Vandemonde...etc) by obtaining the inverse of the coefficient/variable matrix, then could it be said that if some of the variables dont satisfy the system of equations ...does that mean that an inverse of the matrix (of the system of equations in question) will not exist?

In other words, if the system of equations cant be solved..then the inverse of the matrix (from the system of equations) will also correspondingly not exist.

Thanks, appreciate any info
