To perform matrix multiplication in R, you can use **%*%** operator.

The following method shows how you can do it with syntax.

**Method: Using %*% Operator**

```
matrix1 %*% matrix2
```

The following example shows how perform multiplication of matrices in R.

Let’s see how we can multiply matrices in R:

```
# Define matrix
A <- matrix(c(7,8,9,4),ncol=2)
B <- matrix(c(1,2,3,4),ncol=2)
# Multiply matrix
m <- A%*%B
# Print matrix
print(m)
```

Output:

```
[,1] [,2]
[1,] 25 57
[2,] 16 40
```

Here the output shows multiplication of matrices using %*% operator.
