(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Let A and B be square matrices, with B invertible. Show that det(BAB^-1) = det(A)

2. Relevant equations

I think its based off the theorem: If A and B are nxn matrices, then det(AB)= det(A)det(B)

3. The attempt at a solution

I started by simplifying BAB^-1det(A) to just try to get det(A) but I'm just not sure how to do the proof.
