# how to add two matrix in java For adding two matrix we have to follow some steps . Let’s see how we can add two matrix in java.

• First we have two matrix with same size of row and column , so we first take input of row and column.
• After getting number of row and column , we take input of first matrix then second.
• Create in another matrix to store sum of those two matrix.
• Traverse each element of the two matrices and add them. Store this sum in the new matrix at the corresponding index.
• Finally we print the result of addition that we have stored in another third matrix.

### Simple program to add two matrix in java

```import java.util.Scanner;

public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.print("Enter number of rows: ");
int rows = in.nextInt();
System.out.print("Enter number of columns: ");
int columns = in.nextInt();
int a[][] = new int[rows][columns];
int b[][] = new int[rows][columns];
System.out.println("Give the Elements for first matrix");
for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {
a[i][j] = in.nextInt();
}
}
System.out.println("Elements for second matrix");
for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {
b[i][j] = in.nextInt();
}
}
int c[][] = new int[rows][columns];
for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {
c[i][j] = a[i][j] + b[i][j];
}
}
System.out.println("The sum of the two matrices is");
for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j < columns; j++) {
System.out.print(c[i][j] + " ");
}
System.out.println(" ");
}
}
}```

#### Output

Enter number of rows: 2
Enter number of columns: 3
Give the Elements for first matrix
1
2
3
4
5
6
Enter the Elements for second matrix
6
5
4
3
2
1
The sum of the two matrices is
