    test

    By typing the following, the two boxes with its number contents are lying next to each other from left to right:

    \boxed{\begin{array}{cccc}16&02&03&13\\<br />
 05&11&10&08\\<br />
 09&07&06&12\\<br />
 04&14&15&01\end{array}}\boxed{\begin{array}{cccc}1  6&02&03&13\\<br />
 05&11&10&08\\<br />
 09&07&06&12\\<br />
 04&14&15&01\end{array}}

    How would I set it up whereby one box is sitting above the other box?

    Excellent. This prompts two questions:

    1) What purpose does the solitary c in {c} serve?

    2) Why does the second end array rearrange the arrays from left to right to top to bottom?

    {c} is for only one column.

    The second question... I'm not too sure I understand...

    It's like you are doing a main table with two cells, one on top of the other.
    In the first cell, you insert a table.
    in the second cell, you insert another table.

    It's like you are doing a main table with two cells, one on top of the other.
    In the first cell, you insert a table.
    in the second cell, you insert another table.
    In regards to your second question, the source code shows:

    "...end{array}}
    \end{array}"

    I know that the first end{array} links up with begin{array} so what would be the purpose of the second end{array}? Does it put the second array below the first array of numbers?

    It's a little like brackets.

    In brief I had:

    \begin{array} -1 opens first table
    \begin{array} -2 opens second table
    \end{array} -2 closes first table
    \begin{array} - 3 opens third table
    \end{array} - 3 closes third table
    \end{array} - 1 closes first table

    To fully understand what I need to do is test and experiment. Thanks.
