  • (i) A square matrix A is invertible if and only if A is non-singular matrix.
  • (ii) A matrix is said to be non-singular if $|A|\neq 0$
  • (iii) $A^{-1}=\frac{1}{|A|}(adj A)$
We know $AA^{-1}=I=A^{-1}A$
Taking determinants on both sides,
But we know |AB|=|A||B|
Applying this we get,
Therefore $|A^{-1}|=\frac{1}{|A|}$
Therefore $|A^{-1}|=|A|^{-1}$
So the given statement is False.
