I just wanted to ask what does multiplying matrices have to do with computer 3D graphics. I had someone come up to me who said that they are important, but I still don't know why. This is pretty much my question, but I really want it answered. Thanks for any answers given.

Oh come on.. that's about a two second search in bing. "3d graphics matrices"

multiplying 1 matrix by another, transforms one matrix by another.
In 3d graphics you can have a matrix which defines translation(position), scale, and rotation. The scale and rotation are stored as the forward,right,up vectors with the magnitude of them being the scale in that axis.
Now if matrix A says translated to (4,10,3), and matrix B says rotated 90 degrees around the forward axis... then the two combined (multiplied) would result in a matrix that does BOTH

Thank you for the help. Just the answer I was looking for.

When I spent about two hours on Google trying to find a correct answer, nothing appeared on this subject.
