I've read how to calculate the permanent of a matrix, but I found the notation hard to understand so I'd Like a practical demonstration. For 2 by 2 matrices It's easy. For example, the permanent of
2 4 9 6
Is 2*6+4*9=36+12=48
But what about
5 3 1 8 2 4 7 9 6
What is48 the permanent of the above matrix and how do you calculate it?
