The determinant of a matrix is a special number that can be calculated from a square matrix. The determinant of a matrix A is denoted det(A), det A, or |A|.
The determinant tells us things about the matrix that is useful in systems of linear equations, helps us find the inverse of a matrix, and is useful in calculus, Computer Science, Chemistry, Geoemetry and more.
