sA denotes Scalar Multiplication where
every element in A is multiplied by s.
if A=[a ij ], then sA=[sa ij ].

This matrix is said to be (ref) if:
Where:
1) If there are any rows consisting
entirely of 0's, they are grouped
together at the bottom of the matrix.
2) The first nonzero element in any
nonzero row is 1. This is called the
Leading Entry.
3) The leading entry of any row
(except
the first row) is further to the right
than the leading entry of the row
