Calculation:
Consider, the equation, 3y+2.5x3.4=0,
To compute x-intercept, put y=0,
30+2.5x3.4=0
2.5x3.4+3.4=0+3.4
2.52.5x=3.42.5
x=1.36
So, the x-intercept is (1.36, 0).
To compute y -intercept, put x=0,
3y+2.5×03.4=0
3y3=3.43
y=3.43
y=1.13
So, the y -intercept is (0, 1.13).
Hence, the x and y-intercepts of 3y+2.5x3.4=0 are (1.36,0) and (0,1.13), respectively.

We can do row operations without changing det(A)'
But let's say I have an arbitrary upper triangular matrix U
U = [ a a a 0 b b 0 0 c ]
And I perform the following row operations on U to bring it to U′
1 a R 1 R 1
1 b R 2 R 2
1 c R 3 R 3
Then U; is:
U = [ 1 1 1 0 1 1 0 0 1 ]
But now det(U)=abc and det(U′)=1, thus
det ( U ) det ( U )
All I've done is perform row operations on U to bring it to U′, but by performing those row operations, their determinants lose equality. How can that be possible?
So how is this seeming contradiction is resolved. I'm assuming that I must have some misconception either on row operations or on determinants.
Furthermore on a deeper level, what geometric interpretation/meaning does scaling the rows as I've done bringing U to U′, have on the determinant? Since the determinants of U and U′ are obviously no longer equal, geometrically what is this scaling doing to the determinant?

I just started my first upper level undergrad course, and as we were being taught vector spaces over fields we quickly went over fields. What confused me that the the set {0, 1, 2} was a field. However, to my understanding, that set doesn't satisfy the axiom, "For every element a in F, there is an element b such that a+b=0", among others. Can someone help clarify where my understanding is off.
Also one my friend states "for every prime power p^n, there exists a field with p n elements" and then doesn't expand on it. If someone could give an example or proof i would be very grateful.
