c ± Kendra Kilmer August 18, 2011 Section 2.5 - Multiplication of Matrices How to Multiply Matrices ( C = AB ): (a) Check to see if the number of columns of matrix A is equal to the number of rows in matrix B . If this condition is satisfied, the multiplication is a valid operation. The resulting matrix C will have the same number of rows as A and the same number of columns as B . (b) Compute each entry in the resulting matrix C . The entry c ij is found by using the
