use the method of elimination to evaluate the determinants in problems 13-20.

They are all 3x3 or 4x4 matrices

I can't find an example of this in the book. Can someone outline the procedure for me? I've already solved these same problems using other methods described in the book and in class and had no problems. I just don't want to get caught with my pants down if he asks for this method to be used on the test. Thanks
