What do you already know about a
matrix?
Matrices
A table is an easy way to organize data. A quicker way to

organize data is to display it in a matrix (plural is matrices).

   A matrix is a rectangular array of numbers or
expressions, enclosed in brackets.
   The numbers are usually written in rows and
columns and are enclosed in brackets.
   Matrices are identified by the number of rows
and columns. The matrix which has 3 rows
and 2 columns is a 3 x 2 matrix.
   Each item in a matrix is an entry. Capital
letters are often used to name matrices so
that they can be referred to easily.

       Verify the row and column locations of
the following entries:
     31.7     Row 2     Column 2
     30.8     Row 4     Column 2

Vertex Matrices
The coordinates of
RHMS can be written
as a vertex matrix.
