I have a matrix of 0's. What I would like to know is how to take the same matrix and put new information, like a 1, into it. Or would it be fast to have the program build up the matrix from the ground up to put in the points?

I assume you mean to change an element within the matrix. To do this, store the number you want into the matrice's column and row, like so:

`1→[A](1,1`

This would store the number one into the 1st column, 1st row of the matrix. Hope this helps :)

If you would like to fill the whole matrix instead of doing

```
1→[A](1,1
1→[A](1,2
1→[A](1,3
```

And so on for a million years,

You can do this a quicker way:

Example:

```
[A] has a dimension of [10,10]
For(I,1,10
For(J,1,10
1→[A](J,I
End
End
```

Now the matrix should be

[[1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1][1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1][1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1][1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1][1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1][1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1][1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1][1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1][1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1][1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1]]

Or you could use Fill and do:

`Fill(1,[A]`
