Quiz VI 1. Compute the determinant of A = 0 0 0 2 1 0 0 3 0 1 0 4 0 0 1 5 . Computation. There is only one product in this determinant which is not zero: it is a 21 a 32 a 43 a 14 = (1)(1)(1)(2). The number of swaps to get [2341] back to [1234] is odd – you need at least three swaps. So the determinant is -2. Cofactor expansion is easier: just use the top row and you get 0 - 0 + 0 - 2det(I) =-2. 2. Use determinants to find the area of the triangle with vertices (1,4), (2,3) and

Unformatted text preview: (2,6). Computation. You need to find two vectors that form sides of the triangle. So subtract the first vector from the last two. That gives you ⃗v 1 = [ 1-1 ] and ⃗v 2 = [ 1 2 ] . The absolute value of the determinant of the matrix with columns ⃗v 1 and ⃗v 2 is 3 and that’s the area of the parallelogram defined by ⃗v 1 and ⃗v 2 . So the area of the triangle is 3/2....

    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.

    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.
