Write Minors and Cofactors of the elements of following determinants:
The given determinant is `|(a,c),(b,d)|`
Minor of element aij is Mij.
∴M11 = minor of element a11 = d
M12 = minor of element a12 = b
M21 = minor of element a21 = c
M22 = minor of element a22 = a
Cofactor of aij is Aij = (−1)i + j Mij.
∴A11 = (−1)1+1 M11 = (−1)2 (d) = d
A12 = (−1)1+2 M12 = (−1)3 (b) = −b
A21 = (−1)2+1 M21 = (−1)3 (c) = −c
A22 = (−1)2+2 M22 = (−1)4 (a) = a
