(b) lf B is the matrix that results when two rows (or two columns) of A are interchanged, then det(B) = —det(A). (c) If B is the matrix that results when a multiple of one row (or one column) is added to another row (column, respectively) of A, then det(B) = det(A). 2 —1 __3n 7. —) _ Examples: WithA= 0 3 ,and MA:— 1 (I) o 3 "1/~ —1 —1 2 —1 0 (i) A—eBF 0 3 0 so M%=-3-J&A=—3-\1=—3c. 2903) 3 3 —6 2 —1 0 % MA \ (ii) _’-> B: —i —i 2 o m =— =-1. 91939-3 2 0 3 0 s 0 —3 4 (iii)A———>B3= 0 3 0 ScabieacélaﬁA’Q.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
