Thankyou very much for your assistance Isomorphism

Yes you are correct in your interpretation of the question(Nod). In regards to your suggestion, how would i go about in calculating det A^-1, det A^2, det B^-1, det B^2 and det C^-1 - May 17th 2009, 11:17 AMMoo
det(AB)=det(A)det(B)

det(A^-1)=1/det(A)
