To multiply two matrices,

44.jpg

 

We first write their order

45.jpg

For multiplication

46.jpg

Since 2 ≠ 3

We cannot multiply them

 

But, if we multiply BA

Then,

So, order of matrix after multiplication is

= 3 × 2

Let’s learn how to multiply them

So,

     AB was not possible, but BA was possible

Thus, AB ≠ BA

 

Let’s do some more examples

So, multiplication is not possible
