Prerequisite:

Here, we will learn that the determinant of the transpose is equal to the matrix itself. This is one of the key properties in Linear Algebra and is being used in major parts of Matrix and Determinants.

Example: ## Python code to find the determinant of a transpose matrix

```# Linear Algebra Learning Sequence
# Transpose Determinant

import numpy as np

M1 = np.array([[2,1,4], [2,1,2], [2,3,2]])

print("Matrix (M1) :\n", M1)
print("Transpose (M1.T) :\n", M1.T)
print()

print('\n\nDeterminant of Matrix : ', np.linalg.det(M1))
print('\nDeterminant of transpose : ', np.linalg.det(M1.T))
```

Output:

```Matrix (M1) :
[[2 1 4]
[2 1 2]
[2 3 2]]
Transpose (M1.T) :
[[2 2 2]
[1 1 3]
[4 2 2]]
