# Too large of a matrix

Algebra Level 4

$\begin{vmatrix} \alpha & \alpha +\beta & \alpha +\beta +\gamma \\ 3\alpha & 4\alpha +3\beta & 5\alpha +4\beta +3\gamma \\ 6\alpha & 9\alpha +6\beta & 11\alpha +9\beta +6\gamma \end{vmatrix}$

Given the constants $$\alpha, \beta, \gamma$$ are roots to the equation $$z^3 = 1$$ with $$\alpha$$ being a real number. What is the value of the determinant above?
