C# program to check the equality of two matrices has been shown here. Two matrices $[A]_{m \times n}$ and $[B]_{p \times q}$ are considered to be equal if both of the following conditions are satisfied

(i) Number of rows and columns are same for both of the matrices i.e. $m = p$ and $n = q$

(ii) Each elements of $A$ is equal to corresponding element of $B$ i.e. $A_{ij} = B_{xy}$ for each $i \in m$, $j \in n$, $x \in p$, $y \in q$, $i = x$ and $j = y$.

Output

#### Case 1:

Enter the number of row and column of first matrix=

2

2

Enter the first matrix of order 2 x 2 =

1

3

4

Enter the number of row and column of second matrix=

2

3

Enter the first matrix of order 2 x 3 =
