# Animated Matrix-Vector Multiplication

Topic(s):

The animation illustrates the matrix-vector product, $$Ax$$, computed as linear combinations of the columns of $$A$$.  The weights in the linear combination are the components of $$x$$.  The scalar multiples of the columns are computed, then the sum of the resulting vectors is displayed.  Cute animation showing how to multiply a matrix times a vector by taking a linear combination of the columns of the matrix.
