## Algebra 2 (1st Edition)

$$\begin{pmatrix}a\:&\:b\:\\ c\:&\:d\:\end{pmatrix}^{-1}=\frac{1}{\det \begin{pmatrix}a\:&\:b\:\\ c\:&\:d\:\end{pmatrix}}\begin{pmatrix}d\:&\:-b\:\\ -c\:&\:a\:\end{pmatrix}$$
To find the inverse of the matrix, we use the following equation: $$\begin{pmatrix}a\:&\:b\:\\ c\:&\:d\:\end{pmatrix}^{-1}=\frac{1}{\det \begin{pmatrix}a\:&\:b\:\\ c\:&\:d\:\end{pmatrix}}\begin{pmatrix}d\:&\:-b\:\\ -c\:&\:a\:\end{pmatrix}$$
