# math,algebra II

posted by .

can someone show me examples of what is a practical application of matrices or matrix operations that can be used in a real-world situation.

Simple example: Coordinate transformation. An object is located at coordinates (x,y,z) in your coordinate system, what are the coordinates in some other coordinate system?

what do you mean in a coordinate location x,y,z?
