# Vector.Determinant(Vector, Vector) Method

## Definition

Calculates the determinant of two vectors.

``````public:
static double Determinant(System::Windows::Vector vector1, System::Windows::Vector vector2);``````
``public static double Determinant (System.Windows.Vector vector1, System.Windows.Vector vector2);``
``static member Determinant : System.Windows.Vector * System.Windows.Vector -> double``
``Public Shared Function Determinant (vector1 As Vector, vector2 As Vector) As Double``

#### Parameters

vector1
Vector

The first vector to evaluate.

vector2
Vector

The second vector to evaluate.

#### Returns

The determinant of `vector1` and `vector2`.

## Examples

The following example shows how to calculate the determinant of two Vector structures.

``````private Double determinantExample()
{
Vector vector1 = new Vector(20, 30);
Vector vector2 = new Vector(45, 70);
Double determinant;

// determinant is equal to 50
determinant = Vector.Determinant(vector1, vector2);

return determinant;
}
