It turns out that I have the following associative arrangements:

```
Array (
[ItemID] => 192
[ItemName] => Ford
[IMEI] => 0080WEWE
[Status] => A
)
```

When I use the count () method for that array the result is 4, because it counts the elements.

Now I have the following array:

```
Array (
[0] => Array (
[ItemID] => 173
[ItemName] => Cheyene
[IMEI] => 207729471
[Status] => A
)
[1] => Array (
[ItemID] => 191
[ItemName] => Vento
[IMEI] => 008045840
[Status] => A
)
)
```

When I draw the length of this array with the count () method the result is 2.

Now the question is how could I make it so that array 1 would result in 1 using count () or how can I know if my array is an array of arrays or just a common array that is obviously associative?
