# Program for scalar multiplication of a matrix

Given a matrix and a scalar element k, our task is to find out the scalar product of that matrix.

Examples:

```Input : mat[][] = {{2, 3}
{5, 4}}
k = 5
Output : 10 15
25 20
We multiply 5 with every element.

Input : 1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
k = 4
Output :  4 8  12
16 20 24
28 32 36
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

The scalar multiplication of a number k(scalar), multiply it on every entry in the matrix. and a matrix A is the matrix kA.
