For method, 

We Multiply first row by first column in the other matrice 

E.g, 

Let the first matrice be A

and the second be B 

A*B=C (Another matrice) 

Notice that A is a 3x3 matrice (Because it has 3 rows and 3 columns) 

To multiply it by any other matrice it must be 3*x(Where x could be any number >1 of course)

The endings must be the same

for example, 4x4 matrice can only be multiplied by 4*x matrice

Back to the origional question now, 

A is 3x3 matrice

B is 3x2 matrice

Both could be multiplied. 

A row is the horizontal arrangement of numbers

e.g: 1 3 5 row 1

        2 5 7  row 2 etc.. 

The column is the vertical arrangement of numbers 

eg.

col.1 col.2    col.3 and so on.

1        2         5 

 5        7         4

When we multiply 2 matrices we multiply First row by the column in the second matrice

First row of A * First column of B 

so -1*2 + 2*7 + 0*1 (Notice we add them together to just represent 1 number that is written at row 1, column 1) and so on till we do the 3 rows then switch column and redo it :). hope that helps.
