# Program to add two matrices

Program to add two matrices is discussed here. Two matrices are obtained as input from the user.

Addition of two matrices is possible only when both the matrices contain same number of rows and columns.

## Algorithm to add two matrices

• Input matrix 1 and matrix 2.
• If the number of rows and number of columns of matr1x 1 and matrix 2 is equal,
1. for i =1 to rows [matrix 1]
2. for j =1 to columns [matrix 1]
• Input matrix 1 [i,j]
• Input matrix 2 [i,j]
• matrix 3 [i, j] = matrix 1 [i, j] + matrix 2 [i, j];

3. Display matrix 3 [i,j];
