  • In general $a_{2\times 2}$ matrix is given by\[\begin{bmatrix}a_{11} & a_{12}\\a_{21} & a_{22}\end{bmatrix}\]
  • Elements are given by $a_{ij}=\frac{i}{j}$, where (i, j) can be either (1,1), (1,2), (2,2) or (2,1)
Given, $a_{ij}=\frac{i}{j} \Rightarrow$
$ a_{12}=\frac{1}{2}.$
$ a_{21}=\frac{2}{1}=2.$
Hence the required matrix is given by $A=\begin{bmatrix}1 & \frac{1}{2}\\2 & 1\end{bmatrix}$
