Algebra 2

Matrices

A matrix is a rectangular array of rows and columns, normally containing numbers. Matrices can be added, subtracted and multiplied under certain conditions. Matrices can be used to represent different real world situations. Matrices can also be used as another means of solving a system of equations.
