Problem 1064

Find the size of the matrix. Determine if it is a square, column, or row matrix.

\begin{bmatrix}  -2 & 3\\  0 & -2\\  3& -4  \end{bmatrix}




To find the size of the matrix, count the number of row and the number of columns.

\begin{bmatrix}  -2 & 3\\  0 & -2\\  3& -4  \end{bmatrix}

The matrix has 3 rows and 2 columns.

The number of rows is given first, and then the number if columns.

It is a 3 × 2 matrix.

Next, determine if the matrix is a column, row, or square matrix. It will be a column matrix if it consists of just one column, a row matrix if it consists of just one row, or a square matrix if the number of rows and columns are equal.
