Meanings

noun
A number that can be calculated from the given set of numbers or matrix and represents the value of the determinant of that set or matrix.
 "The determinant of a 2x2 matrix is calculated by subtracting the product of the elements in the first row and the minors of the first column from the product of the elements in the second row and the minors of the second column."
 "The determinant of a 3x3 matrix can be found by using the formula: determinant = a11(a22a33  a23a32)  a12(a21a33  a23a31) + a13(a21a32  a22a31)"
