(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Give all the possible 2x2 row echelon reduced matrices.

2. The attempt at a solutionI thought about the matrices (0 0, 0 0), (1 0, 0 0), (0 1, 0 0), (0 0, 1 0), (1 0, 0 1), (0 1, 0 0), (0 0, 0 1). Where the "," inside the parenthesis means a change of row.

So in total I have found 7 matrices... is this right?

Hmm isn't there an infinity of them? Like for example (1 0, a, b) where a is different from 1.

As you see I'm confused.
