The elements of row 1 multiplied by 2 are added to the corresponding elements of row 3. more info
This elementary transformation does not change the value of the determinant.
The elements of column 3 multiplied by 2 are added to the corresponding elements of column 1. more info
This elementary transformation does not change the value of the determinant.
Expand the determinant along the row 3. more info
Products are summed. If the element is zero then product is zero too.
= 3 * ( 3 * 5  3 * ( 1) ) = = 3 * ( 15 + 3 ) = = 36 2. Let's calculate the determinant A by expanding along the row 1.
