Answer : $-$$0$, because it is easy to see that first column and third column are multiple of each other.

Third column = First column $^{\ast }$ $15.$

So rank is  $< 3$, so Determinant must be $0$.

It stays zero as row & column transformations don't affect determinant.

But note that, interchanging the rows and columns effects the sign !

A =$\begin{bmatrix} 7 & 4\\ 9 & 3 \end{bmatrix}$ ==> |A| = 21-36=-15

interchange the rows

B =$\begin{bmatrix} 9 & 3 \\ 7 & 4 \end{bmatrix}$ ==> |A| = 36-21=15

Only interchanging two rows or two columns determinant value becomes -ve .Except any elementary operation doesn't affect determinant.
