Python programming allows function to take some parameters and compute them and return a value. This is very efficient method of programming when it clearly defined what inputs a function will take and what output it returns.
Python Program That Compute Sum Of Two Matrix
In this example, we will create two matrix using lists and use python functions to pass the matrix and add them and return a
# Program to add two matrix and return the final matrix # print the output matrixOne = [[2,3],[1,1]] matrixTwo = [[4,5],[7,2]] sum_matrix = [[0,0],[0,0]] def add_m(): m3 = [[0,0],[0,0]] for i in range(2): for j in range(2): m3[i][j] = matrixOne[i][j] + matrixTwo[i][j] return m3 sum_matrix = add_m() for i in range(0,2): for j in range(0,2): print(sum_matrix[i][j], end=" ") print()
In the program above, the function receives two matrix of size
2 x 2 and adds them to
m3. The matrix
m3 is returned as the final matrix.
The function is called with matrices as arguments and the output is assigned to
sum_matrix. It means the function will return
m3 matrix and assign it to
sum_matrix. Then we use a nested loop to display the content of
sum_matrix. Output of the above program is given below.
