This tool multiplies two matrices together to give you the resulting matrix.

## How to Use the Matrix Multiplication Calculator

To use this calculator, enter the matrices A and B in the specified formats and click on the “Calculate” button.

- Matrix A: Enter the values of the matrix A separated by commas for each row and use a semicolon to separate the rows. For example, entering “1,2;3,4” will create a 2×2 matrix like this:

[ 1 2 ]

[ 3 4 ] - Matrix B: Enter the values of the matrix B in the same format as Matrix A. For example, entering “5,6;7,8” will create another 2×2 matrix:
- Click “Calculate” to get the resulting matrix of AxB in the result area.

## How It Calculates the Results

The calculator parses the input strings into two-dimensional arrays (matrices). It then multiplies these matrices if their dimensions are compatible for matrix multiplication:

- Matrix A of dimensions (m x n) can only be multiplied by Matrix B of dimensions (n x p).
- The resulting Matrix C will have dimensions (m x p).

Each cell in the resulting matrix is calculated by taking the dot product of the corresponding row in Matrix A with the column in Matrix B.

## Limitations

The calculator has a few limitations:

- It can handle only numerical values.
- Matrix dimensions must be compatible for multiplication. The number of columns in Matrix A must equal the number of rows in Matrix B.
- The input format must strictly follow the comma, semicolon-separated format as specified.

## Use Cases for This Calculator

### Calculating product of two matrices

You can easily calculate the product of two matrices by inputting the dimensions and elements of each matrix. The calculator will perform the multiplication for you and display the resulting matrix.

### Handling matrices with different dimensions

If the two matrices have incompatible dimensions for multiplication, the calculator will prompt you with an error message and guide you on the correct dimensions needed for the operation. This feature ensures accurate matrix calculations every time.

### Support for scalar multiplication

In addition to matrix multiplication, the calculator also supports scalar multiplication. You can enter a scalar value along with a matrix to perform scalar multiplication effortlessly.

### Interactive user interface

The calculator provides an intuitive user interface where you can enter matrix elements neatly arranged in rows and columns. This interactive design enhances the user experience and makes matrix calculations simpler.

### Displaying intermediate steps

If you need to see the intermediate steps of the matrix multiplication process, the calculator can show you each step, from multiplying individual elements to summing up the results. This feature helps you understand the calculation better.

### Handling decimal and fractional values

Whether your matrix elements contain decimal or fractional values, the calculator can accurately perform the multiplication without any precision errors. You can input any numerical values and expect precise results.

### Clear error handling

If you input invalid characters or forget to fill in all the required fields, the calculator will alert you with clear error messages indicating what needs to be corrected. This ensures smooth usage without any confusion.

### Option to reset the calculation

If you want to start a new matrix multiplication calculation, the calculator offers a reset button that clears all input fields with a single click. This handy feature saves time and allows you to perform multiple calculations efficiently.

### Responsive design for all devices
