Both matrices must have same number of rows and columns in java.

Let’s understand addition of matrices by diagram. //Subtraction of matrices.
int[][] resultMatix = new int[rows][columns];
for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {
resultMatix[i][j] = matrix1[i][j] + matrix2[i][j];
}
}

Example/Full Program/SourceCode in java>
 package matrix; import java.util.Scanner; /** * @author AnkitMittal */ /** Copyright (c), AnkitMittal  JavaMadeSoEasy.com */ public class MatrixAddition {    public static void main(String...args) {           Scanner scanner = new Scanner(System.in);           System.out.print("Enter number of rows in matrix : "); //rows and columns in matrix1 and matrix2 must be same for addition.           int rows = scanner.nextInt();           System.out.print("Enter number of columns in matrix : ");           int columns = scanner.nextInt();           int[][] matrix1 = new int[rows][columns];           int[][] matrix2 = new int[rows][columns];                     System.out.println("Enter the elements in first matrix :");           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        matrix1[i][j] = scanner.nextInt();                  }           }           System.out.println("Enter the elements in second matrix :");           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        matrix2[i][j] = scanner.nextInt();                  }           }                     //addition of matrices.           int[][] resultMatix = new int[rows][columns];           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        resultMatix[i][j] = matrix1[i][j] + matrix2[i][j];                  }           }           System.out.println("\nFirst matrix is : ");           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        System.out.print(matrix1[i][j] + " ");                  }                  System.out.println();           }           System.out.println("\nSecond matrix is : ");           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        System.out.print(matrix2[i][j] + " ");                  }                  System.out.println();           }           System.out.println("\nThe sum of the two matrices is : ");           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        System.out.print(resultMatix[i][j] + " ");                  }                  System.out.println();           }    } } /*OUTPUT Enter number of rows in matrix : 2 Enter number of columns in matrix : 2 Enter the elements in first matrix : 7 2 5 3 Enter the elements in second matrix : 2 1 3 1 First matrix is : 7 2 5 3 Second matrix is : 2 1 3 1 The sum of the two matrices is : 9 3 8 4 */

2) Matrix Subtraction in java

Hi! we will learn how to add subtract matrices in java.
Both matrices must have same number of rows and columns in java.

Let’s understand subtraction of matrices by diagram. Main logic behind subtraction in java is:
//Subtraction of matrices.
int[][] resultMatix = new int[rows][columns];
for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {
resultMatix[i][j] = matrix1[i][j] - matrix2[i][j];
}
}

Example/Full Program/SourceCode  in java>
 package matrix; import java.util.Scanner; /** * @author AnkitMittal */ /** Copyright (c), AnkitMittal  JavaMadeSoEasy.com */ public class MatrixSubtraction {    public static void main(String...args) {           Scanner scanner = new Scanner(System.in);           System.out.print("Enter number of rows in matrix : "); //rows and columns in matrix1 and matrix2 must be same for subtraction.           int rows = scanner.nextInt();           System.out.print("Enter number of columns in matrix : ");           int columns = scanner.nextInt();           int[][] matrix1 = new int[rows][columns];           int[][] matrix2 = new int[rows][columns];                     System.out.println("Enter the elements in first matrix :");           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        matrix1[i][j] = scanner.nextInt();                  }           }           System.out.println("Enter the elements in second matrix :");           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        matrix2[i][j] = scanner.nextInt();                  }           }                     //Subtraction of matrices.           int[][] resultMatix = new int[rows][columns];           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        resultMatix[i][j] = matrix1[i][j] - matrix2[i][j];                  }           }           System.out.println("\nFirst matrix is : ");           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        System.out.print(matrix1[i][j] + " ");                  }                  System.out.println();           }           System.out.println("\nSecond matrix is : ");           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        System.out.print(matrix2[i][j] + " ");                  }                  System.out.println();           }           System.out.println("\nThe subtraction of the two matrices is : ");           for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {                  for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {                        System.out.print(resultMatix[i][j] + " ");                  }                  System.out.println();           }    } } /*OUTPUT Enter number of rows in matrix : 2 Enter number of columns in matrix : 2 Enter the elements in first matrix : 7 2 5 3 Enter the elements in second matrix : 2 1 3 1 First matrix is : 7 2 5 3 Second matrix is : 2 1 3 1 The subtraction of the two matrices is : 5 1 2 2 */

3) Matrix Multiplication in java
Write a program to multiply matrix in java.

In multiplication columns in matrix1 must be equal to rows in matrix2

Let’s understand multiplication of matrices by diagram-
we will find out dot product.  Main logic behind multiplication in java is:

//Multiply matrices
int[][] productMatrix  = new int[rowsMatrix1][columnsMatrix2];
for (int i = 0; i < rowsMatrix1; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j < columnsMatrix2; j++) {
for (int k = 0; k < columnsMatrix1RowsMatrix2; k++) { //columns in matrix1= rows in matrix2
productMatrix[i][j]= productMatrix[i][j] + matrix1[i][k] *matrix2[k][j];
}
}
}

4) Matrix Transpose in java
Write a program to transpose a matrix in java. Main logic behind transpose in java is:
//transpose matrix
int transpose[][] = new int[columns][rows];
for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++)
transpose[j][i] = matrix[i][j];
}
