# Exercises. Addition and subtraction of matrices

You can add and subtract matrices of same size, as result you get a matrix of the same size.

**Addition of matrices** (**sum of matrices**) **A** + **B** is the operation of finding the matrix **C**, all of whose elements are equal to the sum of pairwise all relevant elements of the matrices **A** and **B**, that is, each element of the matrix **C** is

_{i,j}= a

_{i,j}+ b

_{i,j}

**Subtraction of matrices** (**difference of matrices**) **A** - **B** is the operation of finding the matrix **C**, all of whose elements are pairwise differences of all relevant elements of the matrices **A** and **B**, that is, each element of the matrix **C** is

_{i,j}= a

_{i,j}- b

_{i,j}
