Dear Aditya

Your quetion is not clear in the sense axa can be written as x*a^2. Such type of quetions can be solved by applying row operations i.e. R3 =R3-R2   and R2=R2-R1. Then it will be quite easy to solve the determinant.

All the best.

|1   a   a^2|

|1   b    b^2|

|1  c  c^2|


=  0   a-b     a^2 - b^2            here i am not usin paranthesis it is impossible for me to use so i left it.but you should use

    0   b-c      b^2 - c^2            R1=R1- R2      R2=R- R        BY DOING SO VALUE OF DET DOESN'T CHANGE

    1   c         c^2


=  (a-b)(b-c) *        0  1    a+b              take (a-b) from R1  ;(b-c) from R2

                             0  1    b+c

                              1  c    c^2

= (a-b)(b-c)  *{1(b+c)-(a+b)}               expand det along C1

= (a-b)(b-c)(c-a)
