The array of dimensions for the provided five matrices contains the following numbers p0=8, p1=5, p2=10, p3=30, p4=20, and p5=6.

The items from the main diagonal are initialized with 0. So m[i,i]=0, for i=1,5.

Then the recurrence we use for i<j to calculate m[i,j] entry of the matrix is given by:...
