I came across a sum related to matrices which is as follows: \(A , B , C\) are square matrices of order \(2 , 3 , 4\) respectively. Also \(det(A)=2 , det(B)=3 , det(C)=4\) then find \(det(ABC)\).

\((a)6\) \((b)12\) \((c)24\) \((d)does\) \(not\) \(exist\). Solve the problem and also give reason for your answer.

TopNewestDoes not exist. The orders of all the matrices are different thus no two of the can be multiplied.. To elaborate A(m:n) B(p:q) AB exists if n=q BA exists if p=m Thus AB is not equal to BA

Well I too thought the answer as 'does not exist' but the answer was given 24.That's why to verify whether I was correct or not , I posted this note.

Of course, it does not exist as you cannot compute \(ABC\), \(A\),\(B\),\(C\) being matrices of different orders.
