`det [[-8a+6d, -8b+6e, -8c+6f],[g,h,i],[2d,2e,2f]]=`
Adding one row multiplied by a scalar to another row does not change the value of determinant.
`det [[-8a, -8b, -8c],[g,h,i],[2d,2e,2f]]=`
When rows change places determinant changes sign (plus to minus and vice versa).
`-det [[-8a, -8b, -8c],[2d,2e,2f],[g,h,i]]=`
When we multiply a row with a scalar the determinant is multiplied by the same scalar.` `
`(-8)2(-1)det [[a, b, c],[d,e,f],[g,h,i]]=16cdot(-1)=-16`
