# Properties of Determinants and Linear Equation System Using Cramer's Rules

In this article we will develop some fundamental
characteristics of determinants. The following theorem shows how elementary row
operations on the matrix will affect the determinant value.

**Theorem 1.**

If A is any matrix squared, then det det (A) = det (A

^{t}).
Example 1

**Theorem 2.**

If A and B are quadratic
matrix of the same size, then det (AB) = det (A) det (B).

Example 2.

Calculate the determinant
value of the matrix below,

We get det(A).det (B) = (1) (- 23) = - 23

Conversely, with a direct
calculation, det(AB) = - 23, so det(AB) = det (A).det (B).

### Application of Determinants in a Linear Equation System Using Cramer's Rules.

Determining the solution
of a system of linear equations can also be done using determinant. The
following theorem produces a formula for a system consisting of n equations in
unknown numbers. This formula is known as the

**Cramer rule**.**Theorem 3.**

If AX = B is a system consisting of n equations in n unknown numbers so that det (A) ≠ 0, then the system has a unique solution. This solution is

Where A

*is a matrix that we get by replacing entries in*_{j}*column**-j*of A. With entries in the matrix.
Example 3.

Use the

**Cramer rules**to complete
Completion:

Therefore,

**Cramer's rules**give us an easy method of writing system solutions to linear equations n x n with determinants. However, to calculate the solution, we must calculate n + 1 the number of determinants with order n. Even just counting two of the determinants of this order in general will involve more calculations than the completion of the system by using Gauss elimination.
