# Program for addition of two matrices

• Difficulty Level : Basic
• Last Updated : 16 Feb, 2023

Given two N x M matrices. Find a N x matrix as the sum of given matrices each value at the sum of values of corresponding elements of the given two matrices.

Approach: Below is the idea to solve the problem.

Iterate over every cell of matrix (i, j), add the corresponding values of the two matrices and store in a single matrix i.e. the resultant matrix.

Follow the below steps to Implement the idea:

• Initialize a resultant matrix res[N][M].
• Run a for loop for counter i as each row and in each iteration:
• Run a for loop for counter j as each column and in each iteration:
• Add values of the two matrices for index i, j and store in res[i][j].
• Return res.

Below is the Implementation of above approach.

Output

```Result matrix is
2 2 2 2
4 4 4 4
6 6 6 6
8 8 8 8 ```

Time complexity: O(n2).
Auxiliary space: O(n2).  since n2 extra space has been taken for storing results

The program can be extended for rectangular matrices. The following post can be useful for extending this program.
