# How do you find the value of the determinant |(4,-1), (-2,3)|?

Given a 2 x 2 determinant , $| \left(a , b\right) , \left(c , d\right) |$, its value is: $a d - b c$
Given: $| \left(4 , - 1\right) , \left(- 2 , 3\right) | = \left(4\right) \left(3\right) - \left(- 1\right) \left(- 2\right) = 12 - 2 = 10$
