Hey guys,

I got into quite a predicament lately when I tried to solve this problem. We need to find the value for x such that the determinants below are equal. I tried to expand then equate but got a strange equation, that I couldn't solve. I tried row operations but that failed too. Can you guys please help? Thanks

Yes, the one on the left is 2*2 and on the right is 3*3.

Thanks again.
