G. ]. The scalars appearing in the matrix are called its entries. Each horizontal line of entries is called a row of the matrix; each vertical line of entries is called a column of the matrix. In any matrix we number the rows from top to bottom and the columns from left to right: so the 1st row means the top row, and the 1st column means the column at the extreme left. A matrix with m rows and n columns is called an m x n matrix or a matrix of type m x n. So the form of an m x n matrix is 1st row~ ()(ll ()(12 ()(lk ()( 1n ()(21 ()(22 ()(2k ()(2n ()(ik ()(in ()(mk ()(mn ith row~ ()(il ()(i2 mth row~ ()(m1 ()(m2 i 1st column ...

C = 9. Further, a. b t = 4. c works out to be 6, while a. c is 0 since L AOC is a right angle (cf. 2). Hence = IOAIiOBI cos(LAOB) = 2 x 4 x IOGI 2 = l6(4+ 16+9+2 x 4+2 x 6+2 x 0) = t~. 2, which enables the perpendicularity of two lines to be translated into an algebraic statement (that a certain scalar product is zero). A good illustration is the very simple proof which we now give of the concurrence of the altitudes of a triangle. Since it is obvious that the altitudes of a right-angled triangle are concurrent, we consider a non-right-angled triangle ABC.
