Hi wondering if can anyone help me... I've gotten so bogged down in all the rules and stuff for singular/non-singular matrices I've completely confused myself!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can anyone tell me is it true to say that if I have a matrix P, det(P) is NOT EQUAL to 0, then the vectors that would form the columns of P are linearly independent?

Cheers
