# C++ Program to Add Two Matrix Using Multi-dimensional Arrays

#### This program takes two matrices of order r*c and stores it in two-dimensional array. Then, the program adds these two matrices and displays it on the screen.

In this program, user is asked to entered the number of rows `r` and columns `c`. The value of `r` and `c` should be less than 100 in this program.

The user is asked to enter elements of two matrices (of order r*c).

Then, the program adds these two matrices, saves it in another matrix (two-dimensional array) and displays it on the screen.

## Example: Add Two Matrices using Multi-dimensional Arrays

```
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main(){
int r, c, a[100][100], b[100][100], sum[100][100], i, j;
cout << "Enter number of rows (between 1 and 100): ";
cin >> r;
cout << "Enter number of columns (between 1 and 100): ";
cin >> c;
cout << endl << "Enter elements of 1st matrix: " << endl;
// Storing elements of first matrix entered by user.
for(i = 0; i < r; ++i)
for(j = 0; j < c; ++j)
{
cout << "Enter element a" << i + 1 << j + 1 << " : ";
cin >> a[i][j];
}
// Storing elements of second matrix entered by user.
cout << endl << "Enter elements of 2nd matrix: " << endl;
for(i = 0; i < r; ++i)
for(j = 0; j < c; ++j)
{
cout << "Enter element b" << i + 1 << j + 1 << " : ";
cin >> 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];
// Displaying the resultant sum matrix.
cout << endl << "Sum of two matrix is: " << endl;
for(i = 0; i < r; ++i)
for(j = 0; j < c; ++j)
{
cout << sum[i][j] << " ";
if(j == c - 1)
cout << endl;
}
return 0;
}
```

**Output**

Enter number of rows (between 1 and 100): 2 Enter number of columns (between 1 and 100): 2 Enter elements of 1st matrix: Enter element a11: -4 Enter element a12: 5 Enter element a21: 6 Enter element a22: 8 Enter elements of 2nd matrix: Enter element b11: 3 Enter element b12: -9 Enter element b21: 7 Enter element b22: 2 Sum of two matrix is: -1 -4 13 10
