With the help of `matrix.sum()` method, we are able to find the sum of values in a matrix by using the same method.

Syntax : `matrix.sum()`
Return : Return sum of values in a matrix

Example #1 :
In this example we are able to find the sum of values in a matrix by using `matrix.sum()` method.

 `# import the important module in python``import` `numpy as np``            ` `# make matrix with numpy``gfg ``=` `np.matrix(``'[4, 1; 12, 3]'``)``            ` `# applying matrix.sum() method``geek ``=` `gfg.``sum``()``  ` `print``(geek)`
Output:
```20
```

Example #2 :

 `# import the important module in python``import` `numpy as np``            ` `# make matrix with numpy``gfg ``=` `np.matrix(``'[4, 1, 9; 12, 3, 1; 4, 5, 6]'``)``            ` `# applying matrix.sum() method``geek ``=` `gfg.``sum``(axis ``=` `1``)``  ` `print``(geek)`
Output:
```[
