Spreadsheets: finding the determinant of a matrix using Excel

The tutor tells how to have Excel evaluate a determinant for you.

Here’s how:

  1. Key in your matrix values. Let’s imagine you use the range a1:d4.
  2. Select a cell away from the range, let’s say f6. Key in =mdeterm(a1:d4) then press Enter.

HTH:)
