In Calculus we often use the cross product of vectors to find orthogonal vectors and the area of parallelograms in three dimensions. The cross product of vectors is found by identifying the 3x3 determinants, however we substitute one of the rows with symbols that represent unit vectors. Finding 3x3 determinants can be made easier if we understand how to simplify determinants.
