How can NumPy be used to compute the rank of a matrix?

I was trying to compute matrix rank manually and this was the code that I wrote:

I’m well aware that this is super inefficient and very lengthy, but I’m unaware if there’s any functionality to calculate this using just one single function. Are there any functions that can be found in NumPy using which we can simplify this huge code?

Hello @safiaa.02,

NumPy provides a function called matrix_rank() that simplifies the process of computing the rank of a matrix. This function is located in the linalg module of NumPy, which is specifically designed for linear algebraic computations. I have included an example code below that demonstrates how you can use this function:

I hope this helps!
