When a large amount of numerical data has to be used frequently in the same order and format, we can arrange them conveniently in the form of a Matrix.
Some situations where Matrices are used:
- when describing about
- - road networks.
- - communication networks.
- - power supply networks.
- - daily diatary(nutrient) requirements for chicken in a poultry farm. etc...
We use matrices when solving real-world problems which are impossible to solve manually due to the very large amount of data involved with them. Matrices is a new topic which comes under 'Modern mathematics', introduced into school curriculum few decades ago.
