$$ P^{-1}=\left[ \begin {array}{cccc} \frac{3}{5}&\frac{8}{5}\\ \frac{4}{5}&\frac{9}{5} \end {array} \right]. $$

Work Step by Step

Given $$ B=\{(2,5),(1,2)\}, B^{\prime}=\{(2,1),(-1,2)\}. $$ To find the transition matrix from $B$ to $B^{\prime}$, we form the matrix $$ \left[B^{\prime} B\right]=\left[ \begin {array}{cccc} 2&1&2&5\\ -1&2&1&2 \end {array} \right] .$$ Using Gauss-Jordan elimination to obtain the transition matrix $$ \left[\begin{array}{ll}{I_{2}} & {P^{-1}}\end{array}\right]=\left[ \begin {array}{cccc} 1&0&\frac{3}{5}&\frac{8}{5}\\ 0&1&\frac{4}{5}&\frac{9}{5} \end {array} \right] .$$ So, we have $$ P^{-1}=\left[ \begin {array}{cccc} \frac{3}{5}&\frac{8}{5}\\ \frac{4}{5}&\frac{9}{5} \end {array} \right]. $$
