# Transpose

The transpose of a matrix A is what you get when you rewrite the matrix with its rows as columns. Vectors can be transposed in the same way.

We can write the transpose of A using different symbols:

• AT
• A
• Atr
• At

## Examples

Here is the vector ${\displaystyle {\begin{bmatrix}1&2\end{bmatrix}}}$ being transposed:

• ${\displaystyle {\begin{bmatrix}1&2\end{bmatrix}}^{\mathrm {T} }\!\!\;\!=\,{\begin{bmatrix}1\\2\end{bmatrix}}.}$

Here are a few matrices being transposed:

• ${\displaystyle {\begin{bmatrix}1&2\\3&4\end{bmatrix}}^{\mathrm {T} }\!\!\;\!=\,{\begin{bmatrix}1&3\\2&4\end{bmatrix}}.}$
• ${\displaystyle {\begin{bmatrix}1&2\\3&4\\5&6\end{bmatrix}}^{\mathrm {T} }\!\!\;\!=\,{\begin{bmatrix}1&3&5\\2&4&6\end{bmatrix}}.\;}$
• ${\displaystyle {\begin{bmatrix}1&2&8\\3&4&3\\5&6&1\end{bmatrix}}^{\mathrm {T} }\!\!\;\!=\,{\begin{bmatrix}1&3&5\\2&4&6\\8&3&1\end{bmatrix}}.\;}$
