$2$, $-5$, $0$ and $-3$ are the entries in the first square matrix of order $2$. Similarly, $1$, $-1$, $3$ and $2$ are the elements in the second $2 \times 2$ matrix. The two matrices of order $2$ should be multiplied to find the product of them in this matrix multiplication question.

Now, let us learn how to multiply the $2 \times 2$ matrix with elements $2$, $-5$, $0$ and $-3$ by another matrix of order $2$ with entries $1$, $-1$, $3$ and $2$.

$\left[\begin{array}{rr}

\hline 2 & -5 \\ \hline

0 & -3 \\

\end{array}\right]$ $\times$ $\left[\begin{array}{|r|r}

1 & -1 \\ 3 & 2

\end{array}\right]$

$2$ and $–5$ are the entries in the first row of the first matrix. $1$ and $3$ are elements in the first column of the second matrix.

- Multiply the entries $2$ and $–5$ in the first row of first matrix by the elements $1$ and $3$ in the first column of the second matrix respectively.
- Find the sum of the products of $2$ and $1$, and $-5$ and $3$ by adding their products.

In this step, $2$ and $–5$ belong to first row and $1$ and $3$ belong to first column. Hence, the sum of products of them will be an entry in the first row and first column of the matrix.

$\implies$ $\left[\begin{array}{rr}

\hline 2 & -5 \\ \hline

0 & -3 \\

\end{array}\right]$ $\times$ $\left[\begin{array}{|r|r}

1 & -1 \\ 3 & 2

\end{array}\right]$ $\,=\,$ ${\begin{bmatrix} 2 \times 1+(-5) \times 3 & \,\,\, \\ \,\,\, & \,\,\, \\ \end{bmatrix}}$

Now, simplify the arithmetic expression in the first row and first column of the $2 \times 2$ matrix.

$=\,\,$ ${\begin{bmatrix} -13 & \,\,\, \\ \,\,\, & \,\,\, \\ \end{bmatrix}}$

$\left[\begin{array}{rr}

\hline 2 & -5 \\ \hline

0 & -3 \\

\end{array}\right]$ $\times$ $\left[\begin{array}{r|r|}

1 & -1 \\ 3 & 2

\end{array}\right]$

$2$ and $–5$ are the elements in the first row of the first matrix. $-1$ and $2$ are the entries in the second column of the second matrix.

- Calculate the sum of the products of $2$ and $-1$, and $-5$ and $2$ by adding their products.

In this step, $2$ and $–5$ belong to first row and $-1$ and $2$ belong to second column. Therefore, the sum of products of them will be an entry in the first row and second column of the matrix.

$\implies$ $\left[\begin{array}{rr}

\hline 2 & -5 \\ \hline

0 & -3 \\

\end{array}\right]$ $\times$ $\left[\begin{array}{r|r|}

1 & -1 \\ 3 & 2

\end{array}\right]$ $\,=\,$ ${\begin{bmatrix} -13 & 2 \times (-1)+(-5) \times 2 \\ \,\,\, & \,\,\, \\ \end{bmatrix}}$

Now, simplify the arithmetic expression in the first row and second column of the matrix of order $2$.

$=\,\,$ ${\begin{bmatrix} -13 & -2-10 \\ \,\,\, & \,\,\, \\ \end{bmatrix}}$

$=\,\,$ ${\begin{bmatrix} -13 & -12 \\ \,\,\, & \,\,\, \\ \end{bmatrix}}$

$\left[\begin{array}{rr}

2 & -5 \\

\hline 0 & -3 \\ \hline

\end{array}\right]$ $\times$ $\left[\begin{array}{|r|r}

1 & -1 \\ 3 & 2

\end{array}\right]$

$0$ and $–3$ are the elements in the second row of the first matrix. $1$ and $3$ are the entries in the first column of the second matrix.

- Multiply the elements $0$ and $–3$ in the second row of first matrix by the entries $1$ and $3$ in the first column of the second matrix respectively.
- Evaluate the sum of the products of $0$ and $1$, and $-3$ and $3$ by adding their products.

In this step, $0$ and $–3$ belong to second row and $1$ and $3$ belong to first column. So, the sum of products of them will be an entry in the second row and first column of the matrix.

Now, simplify the arithmetic expression in the second row and first column of the square matrix of order $2$.

$=\,\,$ ${\begin{bmatrix} -13 & -12 \\ 0-9 & \,\,\, \\ \end{bmatrix}}$

$=\,\,$ ${\begin{bmatrix} -13 & -12 \\ -9 & \,\,\, \\ \end{bmatrix}}$

$\left[\begin{array}{rr}
