Hi,
I am new to Math so I am trying to get some intuition. Let's say I have a matrix A of n x n and a vector B of n x 1 what is the difference between A x B and A' x B? Thanks

I am not sure what you are looking for. I suggest you create some simple examples (n = 2 or 3) and see what you get.

Note that I changed your notation a bit. Capital letters are usually used to represent matrices, and lower case letters are usually used for vectors.
