if i have 2d array[20][20] and if i malloc 20*20 and put pointer to the begining then i use like x+y*20 to get my data, but what if there is 3d array[3][20][20] and i put pointer to the begining, how can i get to for example 2, 0, 0 with the pointer? is there some formula...?

Then you access it like: x+y*20+z*20*20. Naturally if you do access to array[3][20][20] directly like array[z][y][x], compiler does this for you.
