There is no quick and simple way to find the inverse of 3x3 matrices. You have to remember the process and follow it through.
Page 75: http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...4-TEXTBOOK.PDF

Otherwise you can google some YT videos that get inverses using cofactors and that would reflect on what's in that book.

calculation of inverse of a 3 by 3 matric is itself a tedious process and there is no shortcut to it for sure...but if you do it step by step ..it gets quiet easier...i was also looking for a easier solution..so i found this video ..it explains the process in quiet a simpler way...hope it helps..

determinant - D
matrix of minors - M
cofactor - C
then transpose that - CT

Then just 1/D * CT

Idk if that helps but as others have said its long and tedious and theres no getting around that, but i found at easier to just remember those 4 steps and know how to do 4 smaller steps rather than think of it as one big process. I mean I still remember that from 2 months ago very clearly.

Sorry if this doesnt help though, and good luck in your exam tomororw

Edit: 14 hours ago, im probably too late, idk why this came up on my sidebar :rofl:
