#### Explanation:

A square matrix is simply a matrix that has eh same number of rows and columns

Thus such matrices will have orders of the form

$m \times m$

eg.

$2 \times 2 \text{ } \left(\begin{matrix}a & b \\ c & d\end{matrix}\right)$

$3 \times 3 \text{ } \left(\begin{matrix}a & b & c \\ d & e & f \\ g & h & i\end{matrix}\right)$
