1. Question
If a matrix has 8 elements, what are the possible orders it can have? What if it has 5 elements?
Answer
If a matrix is of order m×n elements, it has mn elements. So, if the matrix has 8 elements, we will find the
ordered pairs m and n.
mn = 8
Then, ordered pairs m and n can be
m×n be (8×1),(1×8),(4×2),(2×4)
Now, if it has 5 elements
Possible orders are (5×1), (1×5).
