  • (i) The determinant of the product of matrices is equal to product of the respective determinant ,that |AB|=|A||B|,where A and B are the square matrices of the same order.
  • (ii) $|kA|=k^3|A|$
Given: |A|=5,|B|=3
Therefore |AB|=|A||B|
$\qquad\qquad\quad=5\times 3=15.$
$|3AB|=3^3|AB|$ $\qquad(|kA|=k^3|A|)$
Therefore $|3AB|=3\times 3\times 3\times (15)$
$\qquad\qquad\qquad=27\times 15$
Hence True.
