Find, with explanation, det(A3 ), det(5A), det(C T ) and det(AT B 2 C −1 ). x + a x + 2a x + 3a (c) (6 points) In terms of x and a, find the determinant of x + 2a x + 3a x + 4a . x + 4a x + 5a x + 6a a b ￿ ￿ Solution: (a) Using the cofactor method along the top row will reduce this determinant problem to simply taking the determinant of two 3 × 3 matrices and adding them. Then, we expand along the rows of the cofactors that only have a s...
