SECTION 3.2 PROPERTIES OF DETERMINANTS Adding a multiple of one row to another row does not change the determinant. Multiplying a row by a constant also multiplies the determinant by that constant. Switching two rows multiplies the determinant by - 1. A square matrix A is invertible if and only if det A 6 = 0, so we have yet another part of the Invertible Matrix Theorem. det A = det A T , so we can do column operations to find det A if we want. For square matrices det
