Well, is the definition of RREF?

In linear algebra a matrix is in row echelon form if

* All nonzero rows (rows with at least one nonzero element) are above any rows of all zeroes, and

* The leading coefficient (the first nonzero number from the left, also called the pivot) of a nonzero row is always strictly to the right of the leading coefficient of the row above it.

From the looks of it, it looks like it follows those properties, but I'm just confused if it is still rref if everything is 0, since it doesn't have a leading 1.

The leading entry in the first row is a 1.
