### Abstract

In this paper, we consider an m × n regular matrix A over a commutative ring A (-a matrix whose range is direct summand of A ^{m}) and a necessary and sufficient condition in terms of determinantal rank is obtained for solvability of Ax = b. In the light of this result we define rank-function for matrices.
