I think the way the sentence is structured can cause confusion. Namely
a 31K text file containing a 80 by 80 matrix, from the left column to the right column.
This could be interpreted to mean the matrix is given one column at a time.

The order of the last sentence of Problem 81 (View Problem), Problem 82 (View Problem) and Problem 83 (View Problem) has been changed in order to address the possible confusion rows vs columns in #082.

I don't see that the problem statements not clarify that the matrix is given as rows.
