While a “true” multi-dimensional array is not in the standard ruby
library, you can fake it by having arrays of array pretty easily.

def multiplaction_table(limit)
output = []
limit.times do |x|
output[x] = []
limit.times do |y|
output[x][y] = x * y
end
end

output
end

result = multiplaction_table(10)
result[5][8] #=> 40
result[6][6] #=> 36
result[2][3] #=> 6

below are two examples first is for 2 dimensional array and second for 3
dimension

irb(main):001:0> mar = [[1,2],[3,4],[5,6]] #this creates 2 dimensional
array
called mar
=> [[1, 2], [3, 4], [5, 6]]
irb(main):002:0> mar[1][0] #to access value 3 we have to access 2nd
element
of mar which is an array and then 1st element of that array
=> 3
irb(main):003:0> mar3 = [[[1,2],[3,4]], [[5,6],[7,8]], [[9,10],[11,12]]]

this creates 3 dimensional array mar3
=> [[[1, 2], [3, 4]], [[5, 6], [7, 8]], [[9, 10], [11, 12]]]
irb(main):004:0> mar3[2][1][1] # value 12 is in 3rd element of mar3, in
it
its the 2nd element is [11,12] and in it 2nd element is value 12
=> 12
irb(main):005:0>

I hope this helps
