In this page rank of matrix questions 2 we are going to see solution of question2.

Procedure to find Echelon form (triangular form)

(i) The first element of every non-zero row is 1.

(ii) The row which is having every element zero should be below the non zero row.

(iii) Number of zeroes in the next non zero row should be more than the number of zeroes in the previous non zero row.
