**Solve without expanding the determinant having elements which are listed as follows row-wise = {1^2,2^2,3^2,2^2,3^2,4^2,3^2,4^2,5^2} where , the determinant is of the order 3**

I have tried some combinations of operations performed row or column wise that could produce 2 zeros either in one of the rows or columns and then expanding the determinant along that row or column; but is there any simpler way out?
