Wait, what? o.O I understand what you did when you did the cofactor part, but not after that.

- angela210793

tell me on my drawing wht didnt u understand please

- anonymous

|dw:1343828609211:dw|
Also, that wasn't the answer they gave?

- anonymous

Or was that just a part of the process?

- angela210793

just calculations O.o|dw:1343828726092:dw|

- anonymous

How does that work? o.O Sorry, I just haven't done TOO much with matrices yet...

- angela210793

Hmmmm....im sorry i am not sure how to explain you why it is like that....:(
it just is like that
hmmmm....u can try these...they r pretty good http://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra/algebra-matrices?k

Well, the final answer is a matrix...can you tell me what topic for matrices to watch? I've watched all of them to the extent of Algebra II material.

- angela210793

Hmmmm....maybe I've misunderstood wht u want to find...
hang on a sec

watch inverting matrices

- anonymous

Wouldn't the inverse be \[\left[\begin{matrix}-2 & 1 \\ 4 & 4\end{matrix}\right]\]

- anonymous

Or do I multiply by the reciprocal of the determinant?

- angela210793

tell me smth
u want to find the inverse of the |dw:1343829407799:dw|

- anonymous

Would I perform this:
\[-\frac1{12}\left[\begin{matrix}-2 & 1 \\ 4 & 4\end{matrix}\right]\]

- anonymous

Yes. I want to find the inverse of what's above in your picture.

- angela210793

learnt this At Khan's videos
so jusat plug in the numbers now |dw:1343829481250:dw|

- angela210793

or read this...is very well explained http://dcann.myweb.uga.edu/lect08add.pdf

- anonymous

Isn't that what I did above?
|dw:1343829681330:dw|

- angela210793

yup :)

- anonymous

Alright, so the answer would be:
\[\left[\begin{matrix}\frac16 & -\frac1{12} \\ -\frac13 & -\frac13\end{matrix}\right]\]

- angela210793

shouldnt it be |dw:1343830119553:dw|

- anonymous

Is there supposed to an aboslute value on the A? not sure...I thought that a and d switched places and that b and c negated...maybe I'm wrong?

- angela210793

no abs value

- anonymous

So it would be correct what I did?

- angela210793

hang on a sec pls...im on the phone

- angela210793

i said so...from the second link i sent u

- anonymous

Wait. Let me check the link...

- angela210793

oh wait ...-_-

- anonymous

I have not gone that far into matrices quite yet...haven't learned to transpose... -_-

- angela210793

it was as u said...sorry...it's too hot in here -_-'' I'm not thinking well :p
