Dear Fellows,
I am trying to find out the answers for
if true
% inv([1.4326e+21,8.5958e+21;0.2001,2.2005])
end
and I got the error message and answer is
endWarning: Matrix is close to singular or badly scaled. Results may be inaccurate. RCOND = 1.661695e-23.
ans =
0.0000 -6.0009
-0.0000 1.0001
I know my matrix is badly scaled, but what I should do about this if I have to find the accurate inverse of this kind of matrix?
Cheers

There is a closed form expression for the inverse of a 2-by-2 matrix here (see equation 4).
A = [1.4326e+21,8.5958e+21;0.2001,2.2005];
Ai = 1/det(A)*[2.2005,-8.5958e+21;-0.2001,1.4326e+21];

What is the right hand side of the equation you're solving? If you're solving equations that look like this,
1.4326e+21 * x + 8.5958e+21 * y = 2e21
0.2001 * x + 2.2005 * y = 1
then the problem is simply that the coefficients in the first equation are measured in the wrong units. Rescale the system to this equivalent one
1.4326*x + 8.5958*y = 2
0.2001*x + 2.2005*y = 1
and now your system is much better conditioned.

As a footnote, you should not be using INV. You should be using MLDIVIDE or backslash.

In your case the result is correct, you can check:
a*inv(a) % is an identity matrix
