Answer:

See below.

Explanation:

Calling #e^i# the dual basis of #e_j# we have

#<< e^i, e_j >> = delta_j^i# or

#(e^1, e^2, e^3)((e_1),(e_2),(e_3)) = I_3# then if

#M = ((e_1),(e_2),(e_3)) = ((-2,4,-1),(-1,3,-1),(1,-2,1))# then

#M^-1 = (e^1, e^2, e^3) = ((-1, 2, 1),(0, 1, 1),(1, 0, 2))#

or

#e^1 = (-1,0,1)^top#
#e^2=(2,1,0)^top#
#e^3 = (1,1,2)^top#

form the dual basis.
