Answer on Algebra Question for lishan hailu

Question #21511
8) give matrices A and B of size 3x3. if det (A)=4, det (B)=-3, then det(A-1(2B)2)= ---------
Expert's answer
Denote by a^b the number a in power b, so for example 2^3= 2*2*2=8.

We will use the following properties of determinant:
1) Determinant of product of two matrices is equal to theproduct of their determinants

det(X*Y) = det(X) * det(Y)
In particular, det(X^2) = det(X) * det(X) = det(X)^2
2) Determinant of the inverse matrix is equal to1/determinant of initial matrix:

det(A^{-1}) = 1/det(A)
3) Determinant of matrix kX having size nxn is equal to det(kB) = k^n * det(B)
Thus
det(A^{-1}) * det((2B)^2) =
= 1/det(A) *(det(2B))^2 =
= 1/4 * (2^3 *det(B))^2 =
= 1/4 * (8 *(-3))^2 =
= 1/4 *(-24)^2 =
= 24/4 * 24 =
= 6 * 24 =
= 144
