Compute the determinant of the n × n matrix A for which aij = max(i, j).

I can compute determinants but I don't really know what the last bit means.

Any help appreciated.

Put some numbers in. For example, a12 = max(1, 2) = 2.

max(i,j) means either *i* or *j*, whichever is greater.

In the main diagonal of your matrix i = j, so max{ i, j } = i or j

above the main diagonal j > i, so max{ i, j } = j

below the main diagonal i > j so max { i, j } = i

The OP had a simple question about the meaning of

aij = max(i, j)

The question has been answered. This is a homework thread; please do not provide further help on solving the problem unless the OP posts again with more questions.
