If Ax= B then so knowing the inverse of a matrix let you immediately solve a matrix equation or system of linear equations which can be written as a matrix equation. This is a bit "metamathematical" but it is generally the case that, in applications, the coefficient matrix, A, depends upon the "structure" of the application while B depends upon special conditions. It is not uncommon, in applications, to have many different problems where you have the same "structure", A, but different "special conditions", B. Knowing the inverse of matrix A lets you solve all of those problems quickly.
