Toolbox:
• Multiplication of two matrices is defined only if the number of columns of the left matrix is the same as the number of rows of the right matrix.
• If A is an m-by-n matrix and B is an n-by-p matrix, then their matrix product AB is the m-by-p matrix whose entries are given by dot product of the corresponding row of A and the corresponding column of B:
• $\begin{bmatrix}AB\end{bmatrix}_{i,j} = A_{i,1}B_{1,j} + A_{i,2}B_{2,j} + A_{i,3}B_{3,j} ... A_{i,n}B_{n,j}$
Given $A\;=\begin{bmatrix}2 & 4\\3 & 2\end{bmatrix}$ and $B\;=\begin{bmatrix}1 & 3\\-2 & 5\end{bmatrix}$,
$BA_{1,1}$ = 1x2 + 3x3 = 11
$BA_{1,2}$ = 1x4 + 3x2 = 10
$BA_{2,1}$ = (-2)x2 + 5x3 = 11
$BA_{2,2}$ = (-2)x4+5x(-2) = 2
$\begin{bmatrix}BA\end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix}11&10 \\ 11&2\end{bmatrix}$.
