# R Programming: Create two 2x3 matrix and add, subtract, multiply and divide the matrixes

## R Programming: Matrix Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a R program to create two 2x3 matrix and add, subtract, multiply and divide the matrixes.

**Sample Solution:**

**R Programming Code:**

```
# Create two 2x3 matrixes.
m1 = matrix(c(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), nrow = 2)
print("Matrix-1:")
print(m1)
m2 = matrix(c(0, 1, 2, 3, 0, 2), nrow = 2)
print("Matrix-2:")
print(m2)
result = m1 + m2
print("Result of addition")
print(result)
result = m1 - m2
print("Result of subtraction")
print(result)
result = m1 * m2
print("Result of multiplication")
print(result)
result = m1 / m2
print("Result of division:")
print(result)
```

Sample Output:

[1] "Matrix-1:" [,1] [,2] [,3] [1,] 1 3 5 [2,] 2 4 6 [1] "Matrix-2:" [,1] [,2] [,3] [1,] 0 2 0 [2,] 1 3 2 [1] "Result of addition" [,1] [,2] [,3] [1,] 1 5 5 [2,] 3 7 8 [1] "Result of subtraction" [,1] [,2] [,3] [1,] 1 1 5 [2,] 1 1 4 [1] "Result of multiplication" [,1] [,2] [,3] [1,] 0 6 0 [2,] 2 12 12 [1] "Result of division:" [,1] [,2] [,3] [1,] Inf 1.500000 Inf [2,] 2 1.333333 3
