Unformatted text preview: 2. The ﬁrst nonzero entry in each row is 1 (called a leading 1) 3. In any two successive (nonzero) rows, the leading 1 in the lower row lies to the right of the leading 1 in the upper row. 4. If a column contains a leading 1, then the other entries in that column are zeros. Note: We only consider the coefﬁcient side (left side) of the augmented matrix when determining whether the matrix is in rowreduced form. Example 2: Are the following in Row Reduced form? a) 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 3 b) 1 2 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 c) 1 2 0 0 0 1 3 0 0 2 1 6...
