Determinant is a continuation of the previous chapter matrix. Matrix and determinant are the core topics of algebra. These will help us to solve many algebraic linear equations very easily. Matrix and determinants both are interlinked. Topics which are covered in this chapter - determinant of a square matrix (upto 3x3), minors. cofactors, finding the area of triangle, adjoint and inverse of square matrix, consistency & inconsistency and number of solutions of system of linear equation, solving system of linear equation in two or three variables using inverse of a matrix.
