I drew out your matrix question in a more standard way: You can refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matrix_multiplication for the full understanding of Matrix multiplication, but in a nutshell, when you multiply an 2 by 5 matrix times a 5 by 5 matrix, the result is 2 by 5. For each cell in the result, you calculate by adding the products of the first matrix's row with the second matrix's column. Here's an example: Say I want to find the value of the green cell  that's cell location (2, 4) because I count from (1, 1) in the upper left corner.
To do this, I concentrate on ROW 2 from the first matrix and COLUMN 4 from the second: Now I multiply the values in the first cells together: 1 x 3 = 3. I leave the rest of the work up to you!! Hope you find what you're geocaching for! Cheers,
