I assume your are talking about matrix multiplication with the symbol "*".

A is a 1x3 matrix, and B is a 1x2 matrix. In order to multiply, B needs to be a 2x1 matrix. So I assume that you mean B

B*A is a 2x3 matrix =

⌊12 36 48⌋

where {B*A}ij = Bi*Aj

A is a 1x3 matrix, and B is a 1x2 matrix. In order to multiply, B needs to be a 2x1 matrix. So I assume that you mean B

^{T}= {5,6} so that this multiplication will work, where B^{T}is the transpose of the matrix B.B*A is a 2x3 matrix =

_{ }⌈10 30 40⌉⌊12 36 48⌋

where {B*A}ij = Bi*Aj
