(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find (X * Y^{-1})^{T}- (Y * X^{-1})^{T}

When X = [3 5]

..............[1 2]

and Y = [3 4]

...........[2 3]

2. Relevant equations

Inverse= 1/ad-bc [d -b]

........................[-c a]

3. The attempt at a solution

I got:

[9 -6 ]

[14 -9]

But the answer is:

[-3 -2]

[6 3]

I did the problem twice and got the same answer so I don't think its a simple math error, any insight as to how to solve this correctly / what I've done wrong?
