Toolbox:
  • Let $ A = [ a_{ij} ] $ be a square matrix x. Let $ A_{ij}$ be the cofactor of $ a_{ij}$. Then $ [ A_{ij}]$ is the matrix of cofactors and $ adj\: A $ ( or adjoint of the matrix A) is given by $ adj\: A=[A_{ij}]^T$
Step 1
Let $ A = \begin{bmatrix} 1 & 2 & 3 \\ 0 & 5 & 0 \\ 2 & 4 & 3 \end{bmatrix}$
$ [ A_{ij} ] = \begin{bmatrix} (15-0) & -(0-0) & (0-10) \\ -(6-12) & (3-6) & -(4-4) \\ (0-15) & -(0-0) & (5-0) \end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} 15 & 0 & -10 \\ 6 & -3 & 0 \\ -15 & 0 & 5 \end{bmatrix}$
Step 2
$ adj\: A = [ A_{ij} ]^T$
$ = \begin{bmatrix} 15 & 6 & -15 \\ 0 & -3 & 0 \\ -10 & 0 & 5 \end{bmatrix}$
