Do you know if there are any links between the property of matrix determinants and Complex numbers.
- a complex number being z=x+yi, where x and y are real numbers and i is the imaginary number which represents sqrt(-1)
- a matrix being a 2x2 representation of a Complex number, written as:
x -y y x
I know how to find the determinant of a matrix, but I don't know if there is a property in Complex number operations etc that corresponds to this determinant property in Matrices.
ie. if you perform both operations in their different forms with the same complex number/matrix, you should end up with the same result. I've tried and tried different things, but I can't think of anything that is similar.
I need help! Please and thankyou
