# C Program to Add Two Matrices Using Multi-dimensional Arrays

#### In this example, you will learn to add two matrices in C programming using two-dimensional arrays.

## Program to Add Two Matrices

```
#include <stdio.h>
int main(){
int r, c, a[100][100], b[100][100], sum[100][100], i, j;
printf("Enter the number of rows (between 1 and 100): ");
scanf("%d", &r);
printf("Enter the number of columns (between 1 and 100): ");
scanf("%d", &c);
printf("nEnter elements of 1st matrix:n");
for (i = 0; i < r; ++i)
for (j = 0; j < c; ++j) {
printf("Enter element a%d%d: ", i + 1, j + 1);
scanf("%d", &a[i][j]);
}
printf("Enter elements of 2nd matrix:n");
for (i = 0; i < r; ++i)
for (j = 0; j < c; ++j) {
printf("Enter element a%d%d: ", i + 1, j + 1);
scanf("%d", &b[i][j]);
}
// adding two matrices
for (i = 0; i < r; ++i)
for (j = 0; j < c; ++j) {
sum[i][j] = a[i][j] + b[i][j];
}
// printing the result
printf("nSum of two matrices: n");
for (i = 0; i < r; ++i)
for (j = 0; j < c; ++j) {
printf("%d ", sum[i][j]);
if (j == c - 1) {
printf("nn");
}
}
return 0;
}
```

**Output**

Enter the number of rows (between 1 and 100): 2 Enter the number of columns (between 1 and 100): 3 Enter elements of 1st matrix: Enter element a11: 2 Enter element a12: 3 Enter element a13: 4 Enter element a21: 5 Enter element a22: 2 Enter element a23: 3 Enter elements of 2nd matrix: Enter element a11: -4 Enter element a12: 5 Enter element a13: 3 Enter element a21: 5 Enter element a22: 6 Enter element a23: 3 Sum of two matrices: -2 8 7 10 8 6

In this program, the user is asked to enter the number of rows `r`

and columns `c`

. Then, the user is asked to enter the elements of the two matrices (of order `r*c`

).

We then added corresponding elements of two matrices and saved it in another matrix (two-dimensional array). Finally, the result is printed on the screen.
