As we learnt in 

Inverse of a matrix -

 A^{-1}=\frac{1}{\left | A \right |}\cdot adjA

-

 

 

A= \begin{bmatrix} 1 & -1 &1 \\ 2& 1 &-3 \\ 1&1 &1 \end{bmatrix}

10(B)= \begin{bmatrix} 4 & 2 &2 \\ -5& 0 &\alpha \\ 1&-2 &3 \end{bmatrix}

and B is the inverse of A.

\left | A \right |= 4+ 1\times 5 +1\times1= 10

B= \frac{adj (A)}{\left | A \right |}= \frac{adj (A)}{10}

So 10 B= adj (A)

Now adj (A) = \begin{bmatrix} 4 &-5 &1 \\ 2& 0 &-2 \\ 2& 5 &3 \end{bmatrix}^{T}= \begin{bmatrix} 4 &2 &2 \\ -5& 0 &5 \\ 1& -2 &3 \end{bmatrix}

\therefore \alpha = 5
