     Matrix b(3);
     Matrix c = a.add(b);
     c.print();

     Matrix d(2);
     Matrix e(3);
     Matrix f = a.sub(b);
     f.print();

     Matrix g(2);
     Matrix h(3);
     Matrix i = a.mul(b);
     i.print();

     Matrix j(2);
     Matrix k(3);
     Matrix l = a.div(b);
     l.print();
     
     return 0;

}

output:

5       5
5       5
1       1
1       1
6       6
6       6

How would you write the implementation for multiplication and division?  I have looked at some examples but cannot grasp the concept.  Please advise.

Have a look at http://www.maths-help.co.uk/Knowldge/Alg/Matrices/Question.htm

Secondly I'm not real clear on your Martrix design.  Is this intended to be a class that can only handle 2x2 matricies?  Or is your Matrix class supposed to handle any r by c matrix?

Here is matrix multiplication for 2x2 matrix given the definition at http://www.maths-help.co.uk/Knowldge/Alg/Matrices/Question.htm

Matrix Matrix::mul(const Matrix& rhs)
{
  Matrix temp;

  for (int r = 0; r < 2; r++)
  {
    for (int c = 0; c < 2; c++)
    {
      temp.M[r][c] = 0;

      for(int x = 0; x < 2; x++
      {
        temp.M[r][c] += rhs.M[c][x] * M[x][c];
      }
    }
  }
  return temp;
}

For you Matrix division I'm not exactly sure what matrix division is unless you mean multiplying by the inverse of a matrix?

temp.M[r][c] += rhs.M[c][x] * M[x][c];

Change this to

temp.M[r][c] += rhs.M[x][c] * M[c][x];
