In C and C++, arrays are stored in memory by row. That is, all the columns of the first row appear first, then all the columns of the second row, etc. If you have an int array with 2 rows and 5 columns then the location of any given row can be caluculated by this formula

int *p = array + ((row_numer-1) * NumColumns)
int array[2][5];
// set a pointer at the beginning of row 2
int* ptr = (int*)array + (1*5);
