 # How To Use MINVERSE()

Description

Returns the multiplicative inverse of a square matrix specified as an array or range.

Common questions about the MINVERSE formula include:

1. What does the MINVERSE formula do?
2. How do you use the MINVERSE formula in Google Sheets?
3. What is the syntax of the MINVERSE formula?

The MINVERSE formula can be used to take a matrix of m rows and n columns and return the inverse matrix. Specifically, it returns the inverse of the given matrix, which would be an n x m matrix. It should be used when needing to solve systems of linear equations.

The MINVERSE formula can be commonly mistyped as MINVERS, which would not be valid and would return an error.

Some common ways the MINVERSE formula is used inappropriately include using it on matrices that are not square or attempting to use it on a matrix with no inverse.

Common pitfalls when using the MINVERSE formula include using it on a matrix that is not invertible, using it on arrays that are not matrices, or referencing incorrect parameter types.

Common mistakes when using the MINVERSE Formula include using incorrect data types for the parameters, attempting to use the MINVERSE formula on a matrix that is not invertible or not square, and mistyping the formula name.

Common misconceptions people might have with the MINVERSE Formula include thinking the MINVERSE formula can be used on scalar values or on arrays that are not matrices.
