A matrix is a list of numbers put in a rectangular bracket.
The dimensions of a matrix are the number of rows and columns of the matrix. For example, if the matrix has m rows and n columns, then we say that the dimensions matrix is m by n.
Each entry in the matrix is called a matrix element. Let the matrix be called A. Then we say that the
matrix element $a_{4,6}$ is the entry in the 4th row and 6th column.
