if you take two unit orthogonal vectors in R2, the triangle they form has area 1/2. take 3 in R3, the volume is 1/6. i claim (and half proved) that the voluarea of an n dimensional bunch of orthognal vectors would give you 1/n!. can anyone prove it fully?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(go easy on the linear algebra, im infantile when it comes to that)
