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

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
