The rank of a matrix is defined by the maximum number of independent rows and columns and is defined by the smaller of the two. As a result it can be no larger than the largest square matrix. The challenge is determining the independence. The method of choice is to reduce the matrix to its echelon form. I'd take a look at the Cliff's notes section for a much better explanation than this and an example.
