Row Matrix – Definition and Examples

Here you will learn what is row matrix definition and order of row matrix with examples.

Let’s begin –

Row Matrix

Definition : A matrix having only one row is called a row-matrix or a row-vector.

It is matrix having all its elements in a single row. It has one row and multiple columns.

The order of row matrix is $$1 \times n$$.

General form of row matrix is $$\begin{bmatrix}a_{11} & a_{12} & …… & a_{1n}\end{bmatrix}$$

Examples :

1). [ 1 5 ] is a row matrix.

The order of the above matrix is $$1 \times 2$$.

2). [ 1 2 -1 2 ] is a row matrix.

The order of above matrix is $$1 \times 4$$.

3). [ 0 ] is a row matrix.

The order of above matrix is $$1 \times 1$$.

4). [ 1 2 5 ] is a row matrix.

The order of above matrix is $$1 \times 3$$.

5). [ 1 2 3 4 5 6 ] is a row matrix.

The order of above matrix is $$1 \times 6$$.
