Ex 4.2, 3 Using the property of determinants and without expanding, prove that: |■8(2&7&65@3&8&75@5&9&86)| = 0 |■8(2&7&65@3&8&75@5&9&86)| Applying C3 → C3 − C1 = |■8(2&7&𝟔𝟓−𝟐@3&8&𝟕𝟓−𝟑@5&9&𝟖𝟔−𝟓)| = |■8(2&7&63@3&8&72@5&9&81)| Rough 65 – 2 = 63, 63/7 = 9 75 – 3 = 72, 72/8 = 9 86 – 5 = 81, 81/9 = 9 = |■8(2&7&𝟗 × 7@3&8&𝟗 ×8@5&9&𝟗 × 9)| Taking out 9 common from C3 = 9 |■8(2&𝟕&𝟕@3&𝟖&𝟖@5&𝟗&𝟗)| Here, C2 and C3 are identical = 9 × 0 = 0 Thus, |■8(2&7&65@3&8&75@5&9&86)| = 0 Hence proved Using Property: If any two row or column are identical, then value of determinant is zero
