Example-2 :- If a matrix has 8 elements, what are the possible orders it can have?Solution :-
We know that if a matrix is of order m × n, it has mn elements. Thus, to find all possible orders of a matrix with 8 elements, we will find all ordered pairs of natural numbers, whose product is 8. Thus, all possible ordered pairs are (1, 8), (8, 1), (4, 2), (2, 4) Hence, possible orders are 1 × 8, 8 × 1, 4 × 2, 2 × 4.

(i) Combined sales in September and October for each farmer in each variety is given by
(ii) Change in sales from September to October is given by
(iii) 2% of B = 2B/100 = 0.02 × B Thus, in October Ramkishan receives ₹ 100, ₹ 200 and ₹ 120 as profit in the sale of each variety of rice, respectively, and Grucharan Singh receives profit of ₹ 400, ₹ 200 and ₹ 200 in the sale of each variety of rice, respectively.
