**Problem Statement**

How much computational time does it take to find the inverse of a square matrix using Gauss Jordan method? Part 1 of 2.

**Solution**

To understand the solution, you should be familiar with the Gauss Jordan method of finding the inverse of a square matrix. Peter Young of UCSC describes it briefly in this pdf file while if you like watching an example via a video, you can see PatrickJMT doing so. You also need to read a previous blog where we calculated the computational time needed for the forward elimination steps on a square matrix in the Naïve Gauss elimination method. We are now ready to estimate the computational time required for Gauss Jordan method of finding the inverse of a square matrix.
