    Property of Determinant

    How do I prove that

    the determinant of the conjugate of a square matrix is equal to the conjugate of the determinant of the matrix?

    I tried using det(A)=det(AT) and conjugate transpose, but don't know how to arrive at the conjugate of the determinant...

    Thanks

    Hint: determinant is a polynomial function.
