Sum of two matrices using two dimensional array in C

Matrix is the perfect example of a two-dimensional array. It has row and column. A row represents one dimension and column represents the second dimension. For example matrix[4][5], it has 4 rows, each row consisting 5 elements i.e matrix[0] has 5 elements, matrix[1] has 5 elements and so on. In this example, two matrices are added and the result is displayed. Addition is done with corresponding elements of individual matrix i.e. matrix1[0][0] is added with matrix2[0][0].
The complete source code and output are given here….(The code is also available on GitHub). Here are related articles about matrix operation.

Output

The above program allocates the fixed memory to store the matrix. The program below shows the dynamic memory allocation to allocates the memory to store the matrix.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
 
int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
 int rows, columns, i, j;
 int **matrix1, **matrix2;
 
 if (argc != 3) {
  printf("Usage: outputfile rows columns\n");
  exit(1);
 }
 
 rows = atoi(argv[1]);
 columns = atoi(argv[2]);
 
 // allocate memory for matrices
 matrix1 = (int**) malloc (sizeof(int*) * columns);
 for (i = 0; i < columns; i++) {
  matrix1[i] = (int*) malloc(sizeof(int*) * rows);
 }
 
 matrix2 = (int**) malloc (sizeof(int*) * columns);
 for (i = 0; i < columns; i++) {
  matrix2[i] = (int*) malloc(sizeof(int*) * rows);
 }
 
 // get matrices from user
 printf("Enter the first matrix: \n");
 for(i = 0 ; i < rows; i++)
        for(j = 0; j < columns; j++)
            scanf("%d", &matrix1[i][j]);
     
    printf("Enter the second matrix: \n");
 for(i = 0 ; i < rows; i++)
        for(j = 0; j < columns; j++)
            scanf("%d", &matrix2[i][j]);
 
    // add two matrices
    for(i = 0 ; i < rows; i++){
        for(j = 0; j < columns; j++)
            matrix2[i][j] = matrix1[i][j] + matrix2[i][j];
    }
 
    // display the result
    printf("The sum of the matrix is :\n");
    for(i = 0 ; i < rows; i++){
        for(j = 0; j < columns; j++){
            printf("%d ", matrix2[i][j]);
        }
        printf("\n");
    }
 
    return 0;
