Determinant of 3x3 matrices

This calculator calculates the determinant of 3x3 matrices

The determinant is a value defined for a square matrix. It is important when matrix is used to solve system of linear equations (for example Solution of a system of 3 linear equations).

The determinant of 3x3 matrix is defined as
\left|\begin{matrix} a & b & c \\ d & e & f \\ g & h & i \end{matrix} \right| = aei - afh - bdi + bfg + cdh - ceg
