In mathematics, a matrix
is conformable if its dimensions are suitable for defining some
operation (e.g. addition, multiplication, etc.).
Examples
 In order to be conformable to addition, matrices need to have the same dimensions. Thus A, B and C all must have dimensions m × n in the equation

 A + B = C
 for some fixed m and n.
 For matrix multiplication, consider the equation

 AB = C.
 If A has dimensions m × n, then B has to have dimensions n × p for some p, so that C will have dimensions m × p.
