To calculate determinant values of matrices in Matlab®, you need to use the ‘det(a)’ command. Here some examples about use of this command in Matlab®;
‘a’ is the main matrix that we wish to calculate its determinant value in Matlab® as shown above.
‘d’is the calculated determinant value of ‘a’ matrix with det(a).
At ‘e’, the determinant value is multiplied by 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.
Here is very basic to calculate determinant values of matrices in Matlab® with the ‘det()’ command.
Do not forget to leave your comments and questions below about the use of the ‘det()’ command in Matlab® below.
If you want further coding examples about the ‘det()’ command in Matlab®, inform us in the comments.
