In this C Program for Multiplication of Matrix using the 2D array, we will multiply two matrices A and B, e.g., C=A*B; then, we print matrix C.

The number of columns of matrix A should equal the number of rows of matrix B.

## Multiplication of Matrices in C using 2D array

```
#include <stdio.h>
int main()
{
int C[10][10], A[10][10], B[10][10], i, j, l, row, col;
printf("Enter the number of rows (1-5): ");
scanf("%d", &row);
printf("Enter the number of columns (1-5): ");
scanf("%d", &col);
printf("\n Matrix A \n");
printf("\n Enter element you want to insert in the matrix A: \n");
for (i = 0; i < row; i++)
{
for (j = 0; j < col; j++)
{
printf("\t");
scanf("%d", &A[i][j]);
}
}
printf("\n Matrix A:\n");
for (i = 0; i < row; i++)
{
for (j = 0; j < col; j++)
{
printf("%d", A[i][j]);
printf("\t");
}
printf("\n");
}
printf("\n\n Matrix B");
printf("\n Enter element you want to insert in the matrix B:\n");
for (i = 0; i < row; i++)
{
for (j = 0; j < col; j++)
{
printf("\t");
scanf("%d", &B[i][j]);
}
}
printf("\n Matrix B:\n");
for (i = 0; i < row; i++)
{
for (j = 0; j < col; j++)
{
printf("%d", B[i][j]);
printf("\t");
}
printf("\n");
}
printf("\n A*B=\n");
for (i = 0; i < row; i++)
{
for (j = 0; j < row; j++)
{
C[i][j] = 0;
for (l = 0; l < col; l++)
{
C[i][j] = C[i][j] + A[i][l] * B[l][j];
}
printf("%d", C[i][j]);
printf("\t");
}
printf("\n");
}
return 0;
}
```

## Matrix Multiplication in C++ using for loop

It is a c++ program for matrix multiplication. We will take input from the user for both the matrices’ rows and columns.

```
#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
int row1, col1;
cout<<"Enter the number of rows of Matrix A: \n";
cin>>row1;
cout<<"Enter the number of columns of Matrix A: \n";
cin>>col1;
int A[row1][col1];
cout<<"\n Matrix A\n";
cout<<"\n Enter element you want to insert in the matrix A:\n";
for (int i = 0; i < row1; i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j < col1; j++)
{
cin>>A[i][j];
}
}
int row2, col2;
cout<<"Enter the number of rows of Matrix B: \n";
cin>>row2;
cout<<"Enter the number of columns of Matrix B: \n";
cin>>col2;
int B[row2][col2];
cout<<"\n Matrix B \n";
cout<<"\n Enter element you want to insert in the matrix B:\n";
for (int i = 0; i < row2; i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j < col2; j++)
{
cin>>B[i][j];
}
}
if(col1!=row2)
{
exit(0);
}
int C[row1][col2];
cout<<"\n A*B=\n";
for (int i = 0; i < row1; i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j < row1; j++)
{
C[i][j] = 0;
for (int l = 0; l < col2; l++)
{
C[i][j] = C[i][j] + A[i][l] * B[l][j];
}
cout<<C[i][j]<<" ";
}
cout<<"\n";
}
return 0;
}
```

## Approach for Multiplication of two matrices using 2D array:

- Using Nested for loop, we initialize array elements in two matrices, A & B.
- Using Nested for loop, we print all the elements of matrices entered by the user on the screen.
- Using Nested for loop, we multiply two matrices. For this we use the following statement: C[i][j]= C[i][j]+A[i][l]*B[l][j];
