Symbol of a Matrix

A symbolic representation of a matrix is called symbol of a matrix.

Methods of representation

A matrix is symbolically expressed by using two types of brackets.

1.

Square brackets

Square brackets are most commonly used to represent a matrix symbolically in matrices.

                                   

The elements of the matrix are arranged in number of rows and number of columns within the square brackets to represent a matrix in mathematics symbolically.

Example

4 9 1 0 6 2 4 6 8 9 1 3 2 5 7

2.

Round brackets

Alternatively, round brackets can also be used to represent a matrix symbolically in matrices.

                                   

The elements of the matrix are displayed within the parentheses to represent a matrix symbolically by using round brackets.

Example

4 9 1 0 6 2 4 6 8 9 1 3 2 5 7

Either of them can be used to represent a matrix symbolically in mathematics.
