    2:14 "How did your computation go?" It must be a joke, I'm not a computer! She gave us so little time that I even couldn't get for a piece of paper…ahahaha

    Definitely something I never had in linear algebra. The concept is clear, and the geometry makes it so.

    You probably forgot the negative sign for the 199 in the third row…

    I should rather like to see the premise of the lecture proven.
    That the volume is equal to the determinant.

    that would only be true if (A1*A2 = A3*k), in other words, you're trying to compute the area of a romboid using the formula for the rectangle.

    Is there a mistake at 10:54 where she mistakenly wrote -199 as 199 in the determinant?
