# InvalidArgumentError: Incompatible shapes: [32,128] vs. [128,128] [Op:BroadcastTo]

## Issue

I want to broadcast my tensor of size `(32, 128)` to `(128, 128)` but it generates this error. InvalidArgumentError: Incompatible shapes: [32,128] vs. [128,128] [Op:BroadcastTo].

I want to know whether it’s possible to broadcast it or not. what are the possible reasons to perform this.
I use the following code

``````loss = tf.broadcast_to(kl_loss, [128, 128])
``````

## Solution

We can use `tf.broadcast_to`, But we need to consider that first we need to convert 2D tensor to 3D tensor and then reshape it to 2D like below.

``````import tensorflow as tf

kl_loss = tf.random.uniform((32, 128))
print(kl_loss.shape)
# (32, 128)

result = tf.reshape(tf.broadcast_to(kl_loss, [4 , 32, 128]), [128, 128])
# ------------------------------------------  ^4 : 128//32
print(result.shape)
# (128, 128)
``````

What will the output look like? (Example for broadcasting from (2, 3) to (4, 3))

``````tf.random.set_seed(123)

x = tf.random.uniform((2, 3))
print(x)

y = tf.broadcast_to(x, [2, 2, 3])
print(y)

z = tf.reshape(y, [4, 3])
print(z)
``````

``````# x =>
