# Here's How to Make a Matrix and How to Add the Order in Word for Beginners

Geekers - Starting from Mathematics lessons, when you want to make questions, make assignments related to Mathematics lessons with formulas, symbols, matrices and so on that must be done in word on a computer or laptop, it makes someone feel frustrated or confused about how to make it.

The matrix in mathematics is an arrangement of numbers, expressions or symbols, which are arranged in columns and rows and will form a square. The dimensions of the matrix do not differ depending on the number of columns and rows (order).

So, for more details in this article, we will discuss how to easily make matrices in word. Let's take a look to understand more!

How to Make a Matrix in Word

How to make a matrix in Word is very easy, both in Word 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, the method is the same. Some people think that making symbols or formulas is quite difficult (including matrices) in word. Before discussing how to make matrices in word, we will first explain briefly about matrices.

The matrix is used in finding solutions to linear equations. It is also used in linear transformations (linear functions such as rotations in 3 dimensions). Matrices can be manipulated for example added, multiplied, decomposed or subtracted. So that the calculation is more structured.

How to make a lot of matrix orders, not everyone knows. But actually the method is quite easy! The following are the steps for creating a matrix in word:

1. Open Microsoft Word on your computer or laptop.

2. Then click the Insert menu, select Equation (or click the triangle on the right).

3. If you click on the triangle sign, the display below will appear, then select Insert New Equation. If you click Equation, a sub menu will immediately appear as shown in step 4.

4. Then click Matrix on the right as shown in the red box.

5. Various types of matrix dimensions will appear, choose one. For example, you want to make an order 2 × 2 with brackets (read column two by two / 2 rows and 2 columns).

7. Another way to add orders is by blocking/clicking on one of the matrix components, then selecting the order as desired. For example, you want to make the order 2×2 (two by two/2 rows 2 columns) to 2×4 (two quarters/2 rows 4 columns).

8. And automatically the component/order matrix will increase as shown below.

9. Do the same for the other matrix components to produce a 2×4 order (as you wish). If you want to make it easier, you can also do it by copying and pasting the matrix components.

Note: Matrix components can also be copied and pasted.

10. Now it's just a matter of filling in the numbers as needed. If you want to use symbols or formulas it's also easy to just click as needed as shown in the red box. The desired model/shape of the symbol/character is also available in several ways. For example:

* If you want to make fractions click Fraction

* If you want to make the rank click Script

* If you want to make a root, click Radical

* If you want to make an integral, click Integral

* If you want to make limits and logarithms, click Limit and Log and so on.

After listening to the reviews above, the way to make matrices in words isn't that difficult, is it? Apart from that, when you want to make an order as you wish, all you have to do is follow the tutorial above, so you don't need to be confused anymore. Hopefully useful ðŸ™‚
