Unformatted text preview: i.e a ik = a jk for all k = 1 , 2 ,...,n + 1. Now we compute det( A ) by expand by the r-th row of A with r 6 = i or j . ⇒ det( A ) = n +1 ∑ k =1 (-1) r + k a rk det( M rk ) Note that M rk are n × n matrix and M rk has two identical rows. By induction hypothesis, det M rk =0 for k = 1 , 2 ,...,n + 1. ⇒ det(A) = 0 ....
