# Matrix addition in C

Matrix addition in C: C program to add two matrices, i.e., compute the sum of two matrices and then print it. Firstly a user will be asked to enter the order of matrix (number of rows and columns) and then two matrices. For example, if a user input order as 2, 2, i.e., two rows and two columns and matrices as
First matrix:
1 2
3 4
Second matrix:
4 5
-1 5
then the output of the program (Summation of the two matrices) is:
5 7
2 9

Matrices are frequently used in programming to represent graph data structure, in solving equations and in many other ways.

## Addition of two matrix in C

C program for matrix addition:

1. #include <stdio.h>
2.
3. int main()
4. {
5.    int m, n, c, d, first[10][10], second[10][10], sum[10][10];
6.
7.    printf("Enter the number of rows and columns of matrix\n");
8.    scanf("%d%d", &m, &n);
9.    printf("Enter the elements of first matrix\n");
10.
11.    for (c = 0; c < m; c++)
12.       for (d = 0; d < n; d++)
13.          scanf("%d", &first[c][d]);
14.
15.    printf("Enter the elements of second matrix\n");
16.
17.    for (c = 0; c < m; c++)
18.       for (d = 0 ; d < n; d++)
19.          scanf("%d", &second[c][d]);
20.
21.    printf("Sum of entered matrices:-\n");
22.
23.    for (c = 0; c < m; c++) {
24.       for (d = 0 ; d < n; d++) {
25.          sum[c][d] = first[c][d] + second[c][d];
26.          printf("%d\t", sum[c][d]);
27.       }
28.       printf("\n");
29.    }
30.
31.    return 0;
32. }

Similarly, we can create a program to subtract two matrices. You can also create a function to perform addition of two matrices.
