Number of invertible/nonsingular matrices over a finite field
I'm trying to find the number of different nonsingular matrices (nxn) over a finite field (order q). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance! :)

Have a look at this thread, which discusses the case where q = 2 and generalizes easily.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply! I solved it already :) Hadn't thought about the cardinal of
