Why is that in this question (part c) http://i.imgur.com/1o1uiPl.png
AB = C is changed to B=CA^(-1)
while in this question http://i.imgur.com/bH4ZwNV.png
MC=A is changed to C=M^(-1)A
When should the inverse be on the left or right.

This is a triple duplicate before anybody posts and tries to help the OP.

The key piece of understanding in these questions is the non-commutativioty of Matrix multiplication and hence this
"AB = C is changed to B=CA^(-1)" would normally be B=A^(-1)C after premultiplying both sides by A^(-1).
As inidcated by Zacken, you have multiposted.Please dont.
From a glance at the question, you need to understand as well that applying first A and then B would be BA, and not AB.
