Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This one is more fun than its addition friend. 1) They have to be square. You can multiply 2x3 and 3x5, but you can't switch them. Only square will be conformable. 2) Generally, no. Even if they are conformable. You can construct examples that are commutative, but it is just not necessarily the case.
