## What do columns and rows mean when discussing vectors? |

Vectors can be described by columns and rows. For example, two-dimensional and three-dimensional vectors are usually represented as a single vertical column of numeric values. The following lists such columns in two and three dimensions:

A row vector is usually used for problem solving in which a vector is described as V = (x, y, z) during the specification of a problem. But note: Row vectors should not really be used with any mathematical descriptions.
