Answer:

#A^(-1)=[(7,-3,-3),(-1,0,1),(-1,1,0)]#

Explanation:

#[(1,3,3,color(red)(" |"),1,0,0),(1,3,4,color(red)("|"),0,1,0),(1,4,3,color(red)("|"),0,0,1)]#
#Row2-Row1#
#" "darr#

#[(1,3,3,color(red)(" |"),1,0,0),(0,0,1,color(red)("|"),-1,1,0),(1,4,3,color(red)("|"),0,0,1)]#
#Row3-Row1#
#" "darr#

#[(1,3,3,color(red)(" |"),1,0,0),(0,0,1,color(red)("|"),-1,1,0),(0,1,0,color(red)("|"),-1,0,1)]#
#Row1-(3xxRow3)#
#" "darr#

#[(1,0,3,color(red)(" |"),4,0,-3),(0,0,1,color(red)("|"),-1,1,0),(0,1,0,color(red)("|"),-1,0,1)]#
#Row1-(3xxRow2)#
#" "darr#

#[(1,0,0,color(red)(" |"),7,-3,-3),(0,0,1,color(red)("|"),-1,1,0),(0,1,0,color(red)("|"),-1,0,1)]#
#Swapcolor(white)(.) Row2color(white)(.) withcolor(white)(.) Row3#

#[(1,0,0,color(red)(" |"),7,-3,-3),(0,1,0,color(red)("|"),-1,0,1),(0,0,1,color(red)("|"),-1,1,0)]#

'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#A^(-1)=[(7,-3,-3),(-1,0,1),(-1,1,0)]#
