One is called the denominator determinant, labeled D; another is the x-numerator determinant, labeled Dx; and the third is the y-numerator determinant, labeled Dy.
Linear Equations: Solutions Using Determinants A square array of numbers or variables enclosed between vertical lines is called a determinant. A determinant is different from a matrix in that a determinant has a numerical value, whereas a matrix does not. The following determinant has two rows and two columns. row 1 a c row 2 b d column column 1 2 Chapter 3: Linear Sentences in Two Variables 49 The value of this determinant is found by finding the difference between the diagonally down product and the diagonally up product: a c b d = ad − bc Example 6: Evaluate the following determinant.
