## Question:

How do you write linear equations in matrix form?

## Matrices:

A matrix is a mathematical method to organize data values. It is very similar to a chart or table because it organizes the data into columns and rows, but it does not include any horizontal or vertical lines. All matrices are surrounded by a pair of large brackets ({eq}\left[ \right] {/eq}). An example of a matrix is {eq}M= \left[ {\begin{array}{cc} 1 & 2 \\ 3 & 4 \\ \end{array} } \right] {/eq}
