Sup guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So, I'm totally new to mathematica. I need to use it in order to compute a determinant of a

4x4 matrix that is made up entirely of functions. I almost managed to do this in wolfram alpha, but for a 4x4 matrix, the input is too long. Do you guys know how to do this (and if it even possible)?
