Matrix Addition and SubtractionAdding or subtracting matrices is simple and can be accomplished by adding/subtracting the corresponding matrix elements: c_{rs }:= a_{rs }+ b_{rs}, with C, A, and B being the respective matrices. The order of the matrices A and B must be the same. Matrices of unequal order cannot be added or subtracted. The zero matrix 0 naturally arises from subtracting two identical matrices and contains only zero elements. A  A = 0 Let's take a look at an example:
