The Determinant of Any N x N Matrix
Background image of page 20
The determinant of a matrix with n rows and n columns is said to be an nth-order determinant. The value of an nth-order determinant can be found in terms of determinants of order n-1.

Unformatted text preview: We can generalize the idea for fourth-order determinants and higher. We have seen that the minor of the element a is the determinant obtained by deleting the ith row and the jth column in the given array of numbers i j . The cofactor of the element a is (-1) times the minor of the a entry. If the sum of the row and column (i+j) is even, the cofactor is the same as the minor. If the sum of the row and column i j i j ij th + (i+j) is odd, the cofactor is the opposite of the minor. Example Evaluate the determinant of the following matrix. Notice that you can use either the third or the fourth columns. 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 1 3 1 1 - -- - (a) (b) (c) (d) Evaluate the determinant 3 2 1 4 -- 14 10 8 11----(a) (b) (c) (d) Use Cramer's Rule to solve the linear systems.-x+2y=7 2x-2y=-4 ( 1,2) (2, 2) (3,4) (3,5)--...
