true because all would be 0

That's such a stupid question then...

Are you sure though? What if some of them are 17 and some of them are 1?

0* now 1 sorry.

not*

Like if I change 2 of those to 0 the determininant become 4913 all of a sudden.

maybe thinking off this as M or C matrices i forgot what they're called

Cofactor?

|dw:1359528522846:dw|

now each one of those cofactors i think they're called =|dw:1359528606154:dw|

that's why you'll get zero if you put 17's all in it

Okay but what if I put SOME of them as 17 and SOME of them as 0. Then it a lot bigger.

|dw:1359528822331:dw|

THat's 4913.

SO clearly, there is a maximum.

|dw:1359528911003:dw|

Nvm, I got it.

|dw:1359528962928:dw|

is this what you got?

i mean independent

so the largest happens when all are independent of one another
