### How To Calculate Determinant Value Of A Matrix In Matlab?

To calculate determinant values of matrices in Matlab, you need to use ‘det(a)’ command. Here some examples about use of this command in Matlab;

‘a’ is our main matrix that we wish to calculate its determinant value in Matlab as shown by red arrow above.

‘d’is the calculated determinant value of ‘a’ matrix with det(a) code as shown by green arrow.

At ‘e’, the determinant value is multiplied with 5 which shows you can do mathematical multiplications with determinant values in Matlab.

In ‘f’, the determinant value is added with 3 which means you can do basic addition or subtraction calculations in Matlab with ‘det()’ code as shown by blue arrow.

Here is very basic to calculate determinant values of matrices in Matlab with ‘det()’ command.
