C Multi Dimensional Array

What Is Multi Dimensional Array?

An array having more than one subscript or dimension is known as multi dimensional array i.e) int arr[3][3]. Multi dimensional arrays are also known as arrays of arrays or matrix.

Syntax - Multi Dimensional Array

  • Two Dimensional array requires two subsript variables
  • In the following syntax size1 represents no of rows whereas size2 represents no of columns.
data-type varname [size1][size2];

Why Using Multi Dimensional Array?

Consider a specific example. Suppose that you have a extreme interest in the whether, and you are intent on recording the temperature each day at 2 separate geographical locations throughout the year. After you have sorted out the logistics of actually collecting this information, you can use an array of 2 elements corresponding to the number of locations, where each of these elements in an array of 4 elements to store the temperature values.

Program - Multi Dimensional Array

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
float temp[2][4] = {{12.31, 14.36, 13.4, 12.4}, {11.2, 11.24, 14.2, 12.5}};
int i, j;
for(i = 0; i < 2; i++)
for(j = 0; j < 4; j++)
printf("\nTemperature @ location %d ---> %f (%d time) ",i+1, temp[i][j] ,j+1);
return 0;
  • Temperature @ location 1 ---> 12.31 (1 time)
  • Temperature @ location 1 ---> 14.36 (2 time)
  • Temperature @ location 1 ---> 13.4 (3 time)
  • Temperature @ location 1 ---> 12.4 (4 time)
  • Temperature @ location 2 ---> 11.2 (1 time)
  • Temperature @ location 2 ---> 11.24 (2 time)
  • Temperature @ location 2 ---> 14.2 (3 time)
  • Temperature @ location 2 ---> 12.2 (4 time)


The above program clearly demonstrates the concept of two dimensional array.
