    I think I know what to do, but I'm lost on how to find the determinant.

    \[\det\left[\begin{matrix}a&b\\c&d\end{matrix}\right]=\left|\begin{matrix}a&b\\c&d\end{matrix}\right|=ad-cb\]

    My matrix is, [ 0 -6] [-2 -5] So your saying that I would subtract the 0 & -6?

    I multiply 0 * -5, then multiply -2 * -6 then subract?
