Abstract: Let $ {C_1}$, $ {C_2}, \ldots $, $ {C_k}$ be the conjugacy classes of the finite group $ G$ and choose $ {x_i} \in {C_i}$, for $ i = 1$, $ 2, \ldots $, $ k$. For every complex character $ \theta $ of $ G$ there is a $ k \times k$ matrix $ M(\theta )$ whose entries are nonnegative integers such that $ {X^{ - 1}}M(\theta )X = {\text{diag}}(\theta ({x_1}),\theta ({x_2}), \ldots ,\theta ({x_k}))$ where $ X$ is the character table matrix of $ G$. Some consequences are shown.
