you can create a 5x3 array this way

double myArray[5][3];

Now try to start on your own. When you're stuck, post the code here. Here are some usefull hints: http:Q_21676313.html

I forgot posting full code to homeword question is not allow. Sorry.

5x3 array is like this :
a b c
d e f
1 9 7
4 5 6
g h j

You will use Nested loop FOR

for (i = 0; i < 5; i++) // use for each collumn
   for (j = 0; j < 3; j++) //use for each row
      sum += table[i][j]; //it like sum = sum + table[i][j];

the nested FOR will caculate all value in your array. To caculate value of each row, you use one dimension array[5]
so, the nested for wil be

for (i = 0; i < 5; i++) // use for each collumn
   sum[i] = 0; // assign value of each row to zero
   for (j = 0; j < 3; j++) //use for each row
      sum[i] += table[i][j]; //it like sum = sum[i] + table[i][j];

to print value of each row, you use another for
for (i = 0; i < 5; i++)
   printf("Sum of row %d : %d", i + 1, sum[i]);

how about this...does this work?

for(i=0; i < 5; i++)  {
     sumr = 0;
     for (j = 0; j < 3; j++) {
          sumr += table[i][j];
     printf("%d  %d\n", i, sumr);
