Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3in general the first element in the product matrix would look like this \[\left[\begin{matrix}a_{11} & a_{12} \\ a_{21} & a_{22} \\ a_{31} & a_{32}\end{matrix}\right] \cdot \left[\begin{matrix}b_{11} & b_{12} & b_{13} \\ b_{21} & b_{22} & b_{23}\end{matrix}\right] \\ =\left[\begin{matrix}a_{11} \cdot b_{11}+a_{12} \cdot b_{21} & ? & ? \\ ? & ? & ? \\ ? & ? & ?\end{matrix}\right]\]
