Toolbox:
  • If a matrix is of order m×n, the number of elements of the matrix is the product m×n. To find the possible orders we have to find all ordered pair of natural numbers whose product is mxn
Given that A matrix contains 24 elements.
$24$ can be expressed as the product of two integers in following ways
$ 1\times 24, 24\times1, 2\times 12, 12\times 2, 3\times8, 8\times3, 4\times 6$ and $6\times4.$
$\therefore$ matrix $A$ can have any of the following orders
$ 1\times 24, 24\times1, 2\times 12, 12\times 2, 3\times8, 8\times3, 4\times 6$ and $6\times4.$
