    No, not really, I am a programmer and I came across some code that computes the inverse of a matrix, I cannot confrim whether or not the code is correct b/c I myself do not know how matrix inverse is computed.

    That matrix is singular. That is its determinate is zero.
    Therefore, it has no inverse.
