### Example Question #53 : Matrices

Find the matrix product of , where  and  .

Explanation:

In order to multiply two matrices, , the respective dimensions of each must be of the form  and  to create an  (notation is rows x columns) matrix. Unlike the multiplication of individual values, the order of the matrices does matter.

For a multiplication of the form

The resulting matrix is
