G = GL(2,R), H = {A 2 G : det(A) = 1}

(where the set of all permutations which send 1 → 1)

How could i possibly determine the identity (and consequently the inverse) of the above?

Sorry for the very badly worded question!

What i meant was we have and i have to determine whether or not H is a subgroup of G.

I've determined H is closed - now i have to find out whether or not H has an identity and an inverse. Neither or which i can find.
