As long as the two inner numbers, the 5 (column) of A and the 5 (row) of B, are the same then the product of the two matrices is defined. The dimensions will be the two outer numbers, the 4 (row) of A and the 3 (column of B), so 4x3 is the resulting dimension.

\[4 \times \cancel 5<> \cancel5 \times 3.\]So matrices can be multiplied. & Order of product is \[4 \times 3.\]
