Step 1
A=[123405] and B=[5278]

We explain why matrix product is not possible.
Step 2
If A is a matrix of order m×n and B is a matrix of order p×q
The matrix product AB is possible if
n=p
Here A is a matrix of order 2×3(m×n)
B is a matrix of order 2×2(p×q)
Here m=2,n=3,p=2,q=2
Here n=3p=2
Since np so matrix product not possible
