Therefore, to find the rank of a matrix, we simply transform the matrix to its row echelon form and count the number of non-zero rows.

Consider matrix A and its row echelon matrix, A ref. Previously, we showed how to find the row echelon form for matrix A.

## R Companion to Linear Algebra Step by Step, part 2

Because the row echelon form A ref has two non-zero rows, we know that matrix A has two independent row vectors; and we know that the rank of matrix A is 2. You can verify that this is correct. Row 1 and Row 2 of matrix A are linearly independent. However, Row 3 is a linear combination of Rows 1 and 2. Therefore, matrix A has only two independent row vectors.

## Surface Area

When all of the vectors in a matrix are linearly independent , the matrix is said to be full rank. Consider the matrices A and B below. Notice that row 2 of matrix A is a scalar multiple of row 1; that is, row 2 is equal to twice row 1. Therefore, rows 1 and 2 are linearly dependent.
