Step 1 :  

Check the input elements.


matrix should be in the form $\begin{bmatrix}
 a& &b \\
 c& &d
\end{bmatrix}$



Step 2 :  

Now, find the determinant  of that  matrix = ad - bc

  1. Find the determinants for the given matrix $\begin{bmatrix}
     2& &3 \\
     6& &8
    \end{bmatrix}$


    Step 1 :  

    Given matrix is  $\begin{bmatrix}
     2& &3 \\
     6& &8
    \end{bmatrix}$


    Here matrix is given  in the form $\begin{bmatrix}
     a& &b \\
     c& &d
    \end{bmatrix}$ = $\begin{bmatrix}
     2& &3 \\
     6& &8
    \end{bmatrix}$



    Answer  :  

    -2



  2. Find the determinants for the given matrix $\begin{bmatrix}
     5& &8 \\
     4& &9
    \end{bmatrix}$ ?


    Step 1 :  

    So, determinant = ad - bc


    Where a=5 ,b=8 , c=4 and d= 9 ;


     = (5)(9) - (8)(4) ; = 45 - 32 =13



    Answer  :  

    13
