I will explain how to multiply matrices. (If that's not what you meant by the multiplication law, I apologize for misunderstanding.)

#### Explanation:

There is some information on Multiplication of Matrices here on Socratic.

**Find the second row of the product**

Find the second row of the product by the same process using the second row of

The second row of the product is:

**Write the answer**
