# Maths - Matrix algebra - Inverse 2x2

## Description

if

A=
 m00 m01 m10 m11

then

A-1=
 __1__ det
 m11 -m01 -m10 m00

where det is the determinant for a 2x2 matrix this is:

det = m00*m11 - m01*m10

The following calculator allows you to calculate the inverse for a 2x2 matrix. Enter the values into the matrix and then press "calc inverse " to display the result:

## Code

public final void invert(Matrix4d m1) {

double det=m1.m00*m1.m11 - m1.m01*m1.m10;
m00 = m1.m11/det;
m01 = -m1.m01/det;
m02 = -m1.m10/det;
m03 = m1.m00/det;
}
