# Program for addition of two matrices

The below program adds two square matrices of size 4*4, we can change N for different dimension.

## Recommended: Please solve it on “PRACTICE” first, before moving on to the solution.

Output:

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

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