= 2 The SolutionFirst, select Matrix | New Matrix. Then, in the input frame, enter the numberof rows and columns you would like to have in the new matrix. Press Createwhen finished. Select Matrix | New Matrix
 The input frame will look like thefollowing, use it to enter rows andcolumns.If “Augment” is not selected, youwill not get an augmented matrix.Press create to create.
Now that you’ve created a matrix, the input frame will havechanged to contain a single button, and you will see a series of fieldswith 0.0’s. Use those fields to enter the data in the system. The matrix window, before data is entered.The new status of the inputwindow.Now, enter the data for the matrix. When you are done enteringdata, press the enter button on input frame. We do enter an error inrow 1, column 3.Data Entered ignore the error for now.Press Enter to Continue.Now that we’ve entered our data, let’s say we notice that weentered in row one, column three, incorrectly. Do we need to restart,and go through the whole process again? No, we can simply edit thematrix and change the data. Editing a matrix is very similar to the stepabove. Simply select Matrix | Edit Matrix and then change whateverdata you like.
