what has this to do with determinants?

i dno but my notes say it has something to do with the det(A^T) = det(A)

how do you get (142)(35) though?

invert each cycle separately and note

(a1 a2 ... ak)^(-1) = (ak .... a1)

and I don't see how this specific example has anything to do with proving

det(A^T) = detA

for general nxn matrices - it just takes 2-3 lines
