Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I guess I should add that Det(I)=1 and Det(A)=Det(A^T)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i have \[\det(A ^{t} A)=\det(I)\] \[\det(A ^{t}) \det(A) =\det(I)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\det(A ^{t}) \det(A) =\det(I)=1\] \[\det(A) \det(A) =1\] \[\det(A)^2=1\] \[\det(A)=\pm\sqrt{1}=\pm1\]
