## Homework Statement

Let P be an invertible nxn matrix. Prove that det(A) = det(P^-1 AP)

## Homework Equations

none

## The Attempt at a Solution

P^-1 AP gives me a diagonal matrix so to find the determinant , i just multiply the entry in the diagonal. However, i don't understand why P^-1 AP gives such a matrix
