- There are times in programming…where you can't use just a single dimensional array.…For example, how would you create an array…that holds both a list of original prices…and a list of discounts in the same array?…We could use two parallel arrays…but a better way might be to create…a two dimensional array.…If you've ever worked with an Excel spreadsheet…a 2D array is very similar.…In Excel, the columns are labeled A, B, C, D, etc.…and the rows are numbered 1, 2, 3, etc.…
In Java we use the Index position…to reference each cell.…So, instead of A1 for the very first cell in Excel…we use  to indicate the row 0, column 0,…for the first element in our two dimensional array.…Let's start with a syntax for a 2D array in Java.…In this program, I'm gonna create a two dimension array…of prices where the original price is in the first column…and the discounted price is in the second column.…
So, I'm gonna use a double.…When we create a one dimensional array…we have one set of .…But since this array has two dimensions, I need two sets.…
