Section 4-1 Organizing Data Into Matrices

AA matrix (plural matrices) is a rectangular array of numbers written within brackets. AA matrix is represented by a capital letter and classified by its dimensions. TThe number of horizontal rows and vertical columns determine the dimension of a matrix.

3 columns 2 rows Matrix A is a 2 x 3 matrix.

Example 1 :Write the dimensions of each matrix. 3 rows x 3 columns

1 row x 3 columns4 rows x 1 column

EEach number in a matrix is a matrix element. AA matrix element is identified by its position within the matrix. AA lowercase letter with subscripts is used to name the element TThe subscripts represent the element’s row number and column number.

Example 2: Identify element b 13 in matrix B below. Element b 13 is 0.

Use matrix B to identify each matrix element. a. b 33 b. b 21 c. b 12 -1 0.25 -2

Data can be organized in a matrix to make it easier to interpret.

Ex 3 Three students kept track of the games they won and lost in a chess competition. They showed their results in a chart. Write a 2 x 3 matrix to show the data. YNYYNYY YYYYNYY NYNNYYN Ed Jo Lew Y = winN = loss

Wins Loss EdJoLew 5 2 6 1 3 4

Example 4 On the next slide is the table that shows the scores from the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece. Write a matrix W to represent the information. Use a 4 x 4 matrix.
