I just want to talk about this -7. Another thing we need to do is if we ever want to specify just one piece of data in this thing, so say now we have here we have six numbers. Please visit for: all videos free quizzes free worksheets debut book on how to connect with and inspire students entire courses you can download. We can throw them into different rows a columns and sort of sort it out instead of having to write a whole bunch of information down in formulas or what have you. The graphs of step functions have lines with an open circle on one end and a closed circle on the other to indicate inclusion, like number line inequality graphs. And what you can do is say a and then you just do row column, and that will tell you about a specific piece of data. On a graph, a step function looks like a flight of stairs.
And so when we're dealing with Matrices there is a number of things we created to help us talk about them. So dimensions are again rows by columns, so how many rows do we have just have one row across so the dimension of this is just one and we have 4 columns 2, 3, 4 so this is a 1 by 4 matrix okay. Yay Math In Studio continues our conversation of matrix operations. You may only multiply two matrices if the number of columns in the first matrix and the number of rows in the second are equal. So columns are the number of columns number of verticals statements rows go side to side. When you have completed the practice exam, a green submit button will appear.
And so basically what they are, are they are a couple of brackets with a bunch of numbers in them. One last example let's talk about matrix c 2, 3, 4, 0, 7, 8, alright so another matrix to dimention this one. The first row is the only row we have and the second column which is relating to the number 7 okay. So rows by columns three rows across, three columns down so this is a 3 by 3 it's a square matrix just because is same dimension either side and if I ask you for c let's say 2, 1 you're looking at the second row, first column so this is going to be equal to 2. This matrix is name matrix a, so when I say a this is referring to this set of data.
Matrices are considered equal if they have the same dimensions and if each element of one matrix is equal to the corresponding element of the other matrix. A rounding step function tells us to round a decimal number to the next whole integer or the previous whole integer. So looking at our matrix remember columns go up and down think about you know Greece and all the ancient architecture columns are up and down. The first thing that we need to talk about is the dimensions of a matrix, and the dimensions are basically the number of rows by the number of columns, and I just misspelled that number of columns I was never really good in English number of columns. So some very basic language so we can communicate about the Matrices.
Matrices are a new way of organizing data. So if I want to talk about this number 7 a it's in the second row that's a two and it's in the third column so this is 3. So let's say we have Matrice b okay just another set of data 1, 7, 8, and 5. Some functions are not easily written as a formula. Which of these statements is not true? So we have two rows and we have three columns in this instance okay. Click it to see your results.
. So let's take a look at a couple other Matrices make sure we have this down. Here we learn how to multiply matrices, discussing rows, columns, and how they all jive. See if we can get a little bit more information say we say b 1 2.

And when this is useful is when we just have a number of equations or a number of things we want to organize. You may multiply a matrix by any constant, this is called scalar multiplication. . . . .
