Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let A =2x2 and B=2x2 and compute the determinants leaving them adbc and ehgf then show that the product of that is similar to the det of the product of AB

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if this works on a 2x2 then show that it can used on a matrice of any eelement size so long as its square

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But is there a more proper and concrete proof instead of using the 2x2 matrix formula for determinants? I know that this is true for all matrices of order n. But I wanted to prove it in a more concrete manner.
