If $$A = \left[ {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} 1&2 \\ 4&2 \end{array}} \right]$$, then show that |2A| = 4|A|

$$2A = 2\left[ {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} 1&2 \\ 4&2 \end{array}} \right]$$
$$= \left[ {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} 2&4 \\ 8&4 \end{array}} \right]$$
therefore, |2A| = 8 - 32 = -24
Now, |A| = 2 - 8 = -6
therefore, 4|A| = -24
Hence Proved.
