I made this matrix. The objective was to make a martix where one player has a stricly dominate strategy and the other player has a weakly dominat strategy...
For Player 1, the yellow is the strictly dominate strategy. "T" has the best payoffs
For Player 2, the red has a weakly dominate stratedy, "c"
Is this right?

Judging by the matrix, you meant strictly/weakly dominant.
Looks right to me - for every l, c, or r, T provides a greater pay-off than M or B.
Likewise, for every T, M, and B, c provides at least as great pay-off as l or r.
I hope this was not your school assignment :)
I just joined a game theory class... i just want to double check if i understood the class so far... this particular problem i created, so it was not a school assignment. and yes I meant, stricly/weakly dominat :p
I make typos in every second post, it's a pity there is no possibility for minor edits.
Player 2 would pick l.
Player two would not pick 'l' given game theory rules... "c" is her best option....
For player 2, l > c in all situations:
If player 1 picks T: 6,1 > 5,5
If player 1 picks M: 5,1 > 4,1
If player 1 picks B: 5,1 > 3,1
you have the the matrix wrong...
If Player 1 chooses "T" and Player 2 chooses ''l'', Player 1's pay off is 6, Player 2's payoff is 1.
Now if Player one chooses "T" and Player 2 chooses "c", then Player 1's pay off is 5 and Player 2's payoff is 5...
Player 2's payoff is greater in the latter than the former... ( at (T,l) Player 2's payoff is 1... at (T,c) Player 2's payoff is 5....1<5 )
