Well, if you don't see any clever way to solve it (like me at first reading), you could simply take two matrices,

[tex]A = \begin{pmatrix} a & b \\ c & d \end{pmatrix}, \qquad B = \begin{pmatrix} x & y \\ u & v \end{pmatrix}[/tex]

and see what equations you get when you multiply AB = BA. Then note that this equations should hold for any values of x, y, u and v - allowing you to solve for a, b, c and d.

(If you want to use pmatrix in your own LaTeX documents, you have to \usepackage{amsmath}).
