    last time .... and i forgot to use the checkerboard +- correctly a b c d cofactors to: d -c -b a transposes to d -c -b a then divide by determinate maybe!! lol

    for invertible 2x2 matrices\[A=\left[\begin{matrix}a & b \\ c & d\end{matrix}\right]\]\[A^{-1}=\frac1{\det A}\left[\begin{matrix}d & -b \\ -c & a\end{matrix}\right]\]looks good angela

    \[ M = \left[ {\begin{array}{cc} x & y \\ z & w \\ \end{array} } \right] \] M = \begin{array}{cc} x & y \\ z & w \\ \end{array} \] \[ M^{-1}= \frac{1}{xw-yz}\left[ {\begin{array}{cc} w& -y \\ -z & x \\ \end{array} } \right] \]

    For this one the answer is\[ \begin{bmatrix} \cos x & \sin x \\ -\sin x & \cos x \end{bmatrix} \]

    if it's like 0022 1536 0739 0297 you can expand the cofactors along the first column and you only need to take one determinant, all the minors are zero except for 1

    that will get you the determinant of a 4x4 if you want the inverse I would probably use the row reduction thing
