# How to find the cross product of two vectors in Matlab and Octave

To calculate the cross product of two vectors on Matlab and Octave, we use the function cross()

**cross(a,b)**

The parameters a, b are two vectors.

The function calculates the cross product of the two vectors a x b.

**Example**

Define two vectors

a = [3; 4; 5]

b = [1; 2; 3]

Calculate the cross product a x b using the function cross()

cross(a,b)

The result is the vector
