Show that det(A) = 0 where
A=
0a b
a0c

A
Note that A=AT. Then we get det(A) = det((1)AT) = (1)3det(AT) = (1)3det(A) = det(A), i.e.,
2det(A) = 0 Ñdet(A) = 0. OR Calculate the determinant with respect to any column or any row of your
choice.

Find the inverse of the following matrix using inverse formula:
A=
1 2 3
0 2 3
0 0 3
.

Apply the Inverse Formula(see Example 3) given on page 203: We have det(A) = 6. We also have
C11 = (1)1+1det A11 = 6,
C21 = (1)2+1det A21 =6,
C31 = (1)3+1det A31 = 0,
C12 = (1)1+2det A12 = 0,
C22 = (1)2+2det A22 = 3,
C32 = (1)3+2det A32 =3,
C13 = (1)1+3det A13 = 0,
C23 = (1)2+3det A23 = 0,
C33 = (1)3+3det A33 = 2.
As a result, we obtain
A1=1
