# Minors of a Matrix

## Minors of NxN Matrix Calculator

Tool for calculating the minors of a matrix, i.e. the values of the determinants of its square sub-matrices.

### What is a matrix minor? (Definition)

The minors of a matrix $M = m_{i, j}$ are the determinants of the square sub-matrices obtained by removing the row $i$ and the column $j$ from $M$.

Sometimes minors are defined by removing opposing rows and columns.

### How to calculate a matrix minors?

For a square matrix of order 2, the minors represent the matrix of cofactors without the coefficients.

For larger matrices like 3x3, calculate the determinants of each sub-matrix.

Example: $$M = \begin{matrix} a & b & c \\ d & e & f \\ g & h & i \end{matrix}$$

The determinant of the sub-matrix obtained by removing the first row and the first column is: $ei-fh$\$, do the same for all combinations of rows and columns.
