## Matrix Multiplication In Java

Obtaining a single matrix from the entries of two matrices by using a binary operation is known as Matrix multiplication. In simpler terms, if two matrices R and S of order a*b and b*c are multiplied, the matrix obtained is of the order a*c. Multiplication of a matrix can be done efficiently in java by using various methods. The most effective method is discussed below.

Using For Loop

In this method, we make usage of for loop.

```public class Main{
public static void main(String args[]){
//creating two matrices
int m1[][]={{1,2,3},{4,5,6},{2,3,4}};
int m2[][]={{1,2,3},{4,5,6},{2,3,4}};
int m[][]=new int; //3 rows and 3 columns
//multiplying
for(int i=0;i<3;i++){
for(int j=0;j<3;j++){
m[i][j]=0;
for(int k=0;k<3;k++)
{
m[i][j]+=m1[i][k]*m2[k][j];
}
//end of k loop
System.out.print(m[i][j]+" "); //printing matrix
}
//end of j loop
System.out.println();
}
}}
```

## Specify Input Through Keyboard

```import java.util.Scanner;
public class Main
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
int n;
Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.println("Enter base of matrices");
n = input.nextInt();
int[][] m1 = new int[n][n];
int[][] m2 = new int[n][n];
int[][] mat = new int[n][n];
System.out.println("Enter the elements of 1st matrix row wise : n");
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
{
for(int j = 0; j < n; j++)
{
m1[i][j] = input.nextInt();
}
}
System.out.println("Enter the elements of 2nd matrix row wise : n");
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
{
for(int j = 0; j < n; j++)
{
m2[i][j] = input.nextInt();
}
}
System.out.println("Multiplying the matrices : ");
for(int i = 0; i < n; i++)
{
for(int j = 0; j < n; j++)
{
for(int k = 0; k < n; k++)
{
mat[i][j] = mat[i][j] + m1[i][k] * m2[k][j];
}
}
}
System.out.println("Product :");
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
{
for(int j = 0; j < n; j++)
{
System.out.print(mat[i][j] + " ");
}
System.out.println();
}
input.close();
}
}
```
