Hi Guys,

I am very new to R programming. And currently enrolled with one online course from Harvard 'Data analysis for Life Sciences Series'. I was wondering if anyone of know if anyone of you know what this means How many cells (number of rows times number of columns) would this matrix have? '. I tried to do number of matrix * number of columns and the answer was wrong.

Can you please help me ?

Thanks,

Shafali

# How many cells (number of rows times number of columns) would this matrix have?

You can use the `dim()`

function to find the dimensions of a matrix object.

I did and this is what comes up 22215 189. In this 22215 is the no of rows and 189 is no of columns, but when I multiply this both i.e. 22215*189 =4198635. It say worng value.

I don't understand. Why do you say that it is the wrong value?

Answer is 493506225 (=22215²)
