Online Calculator for Determinant 4x4

The online calculator calculates symbolic the value of the determinant of a 4x4 matrix after Sarrus rule and with the Laplace expansion in a row or column.


det A= a11a12a13a14 a21a22a23a24 a31a32a33a34 a41a42a43a44

Enter the coefficients

Brackets has to be set explicit. Not a+b but (a+b) is ok.

a11= a12= a13= a14=

a21= a22= a23= a24=

a31= a32= a33= a34=

a41= a42= a43= a44=

Calculation using the Laplace expansion

Laplace Expansion Theorem

The Laplacian development theorem provides a method for calculating the determinant, in which the determinant is developed after a row or column. The dimension is reduced and can be reduced further step by step up to a scalar.

det A= i = 1 n -1 i + j a i j det A i j ( Expansion on the j-th column )

det A= j = 1 n -1 i + j a i j det A i j ( Expansion on the i-th row )

where Aij, the sub-matrix of A, which arises when the i-th row and the j-th column are removed.
