Hi,

I'm doing a bit of self learning on Linear Algebra but I'm kinda confused with the information given on odd and even permutations?

How do you determine whether a permutation is odd or even?

For example, the book has given some examples such as:

(1 2 3 4) is odd, (1 3)(2 4) is even?

Can someone help please? Thank you!
