I need a little matrix math help. I'm attempting to do some matrix algebra including division. I have found several online resources that say the division of matrices is done like so:

AX=B

X = A^(-1) B

And in order to take the inverse of a matrix it must be a square...

So lets say I have the following:

AB = CD

Where A has dimensions (4, 4), B has the dimensions (4, 1), C has dimensions (4, 4), and D has dimensions (4, 1).

I am solving for A. So I would guess the first step is to "divide" by B. How do I do this since B doesn't have square dimensions? Any suggestions would be appreciated..
