Equality of Matrices

Two **matrices** are **equal** if both matrices are of same order and corresponding elements are equal in both of the matrices.

For example, we have two matrices and .

They are equal because they have same order (2 x 3) and all the corresponding elements are equal.

, and so on. { represents element present in matrix A in first row and first column whereas, represents element present in matrix B in first row and first column, represents element present in matrix A in first row and second column and so on.}

If, and then they are not equal because all corresponding elements of these two **matrices** are not equal.
