I am asked to answer this question

The sum of two matrices a and b stored in the two-dimensional array c is defined as follows:

c[j][k] = a[j][k] + b[j][k] for j ranging from 0 to m-1 and k ranging from 0 to n-1

Write a test method that initializes two 2-D arrays named a and b that have the same number of rows and the same number of columns. Implement a method named add to returns a 2-D array that is the sum of the two arguments, which are both 2-D arrays. This call to the add method should compile:

int[][] c = add(a, ;

Make assertions to ensure that every element in the 2-D array referenced by c has the correct value.

Below is my answer:

private int[][] add(int a[][], int b[][]){

int[][]result = new int[a.length][a[0].length];

for (int j=0; j<a.length; j++){

for(int k = 0; k<a[j].length; k++){

result[j][k] = a[j][k] + b[j][k];

}

}

return result;

}

Just want to know if the code I write is right??

Don't wanna be rude but the best way to find out

is to ask the good old COMPILER.

the compiler works perfectly fine but I just want to ask you guys if the code I made does what the question wants?? Cause I don't really get the question and this is the best of what I understand from the question

You did OK with the function.

But I don't see why you don't really get it?

This means that

from 0 to a.length or b.length.

At the end of the day it's only adding numbers with same indexes.

Write a test method that initializes two 2-D arrays named a and b that have the same number of rows and the same number of columns

This means that

**m=n**i.e.**j**and**k**are rangingfrom 0 to a.length or b.length.
