Unformatted text preview: t A). Proof. E is obtained from In by interchanging two rows: Then det E = −1 and so det(EA) = − det A = (det E )(det A). E is obtained from In by multiplying a row by λ = 0: Then det E = λ and therefore det(EA) = λ det A = (det E )(det A). E is obtained from In by adding λ times one row to another row: Then det E = 1 and so det(EA) = det A = (det E )(det A).
