# Py5Graphics.apply_matrix()
Multiplies the current matrix by the one specified through the parameters.
## Description
Multiplies the current matrix by the one specified through the parameters. This is very slow because it will try to calculate the inverse of the transform, so avoid it whenever possible. The equivalent function in OpenGL is `gl_mult_matrix()`.
This method is the same as [](sketch_apply_matrix) but linked to a `Py5Graphics` object. To see example code for how it can be used, see [](sketch_apply_matrix).
Underlying Processing method: PGraphics.applyMatrix
## Signatures
```python
apply_matrix(
n00: float, # numeric value in row 0 and column 0 of the matrix
n01: float, # numeric value in row 0 and column 1 of the matrix
n02: float, # numeric value in row 0 and column 2 of the matrix
n03: float, # numeric value in row 0 and column 3 of the matrix
n10: float, # numeric value in row 1 and column 0 of the matrix
n11: float, # numeric value in row 1 and column 1 of the matrix
n12: float, # numeric value in row 1 and column 2 of the matrix
n13: float, # numeric value in row 1 and column 3 of the matrix
n20: float, # numeric value in row 2 and column 0 of the matrix
n21: float, # numeric value in row 2 and column 1 of the matrix
n22: float, # numeric value in row 2 and column 2 of the matrix
n23: float, # numeric value in row 2 and column 3 of the matrix
n30: float, # numeric value in row 3 and column 0 of the matrix
n31: float, # numeric value in row 3 and column 1 of the matrix
