M ATRIX M ULTIPLICATION AND THE I DENTITY M ATRIX Matrix multiplication has many purposes. To multiply two matrices, multiply the elements of each row of one matrix by the elements of each column of the other matrix. (Think over and down). + + + + + + + + = × fl ek dj fi eh dg cl ak aj ci bh ag l i k h j g f e d c b a Therefore to be able to multiply two matrices, the number of rows of the first matrix must equal the number of columns of the second matrix. Ex . [ ] 2 1 3 4 4 5 - × = The result of multiplying a 3 1 × matrix by a 1 3 × is a 1 1 × matrix. Therefore, the result of multiplying an p m × matrix by a n p × matrix is an n m × matrix. Ex . - × 8 1 2 7 6 2 0 1 = Note that the result of multiplying matrix A by matrix B is not the same as multiplying matrix B by matrix A.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
