# Determinant Calculator

The determinant Calculator is a free tool available online that displays the determinant of the given matrix of any order.

In traditional Mathematics, a determinant is a scalar quantity that is derived and formed from the elements of a matrix, which has certain characteristic properties of the linear transformation defined by the matrix.

The determinant of the matrix is represented by the symbol |A|, det A or det (A). Determinants are used for solving the system of linear equations and they help in finding the changing variables in the integrals.

A determinant is a unique, special number and it is defined only for square matrices (like 2×2, 4×4 and so on and not 2×3, 3×5 etc). A square matrix is a matrix where it has an equal number of rows and columns.

The process to use the determinant calculator is as under:

Step 1: Firstly, enter the matrix elements in the respective input field

Step 2: Now, click on the button “Solve” to get the value

Step 3: Finally, the determinant of the matrix will be displayed in the new window
