The following program find the sum of all the numbers present in an array of one-dimensional.

C++ Program for Passing Multidimensional Array to a Function

Output:

Note: It is mandatory to give the column value in formal parameters but it is not necessary to give a row value. That is why int arr[][2] is written. We inserted 2 in the column value.
