Addition and Subtraction of Matrices – For Addition and Subtraction of two or more than two matrices there order should be same.

## Example based on Addition of Matrices

**Question 1**

If A = and B = then, find A + B ?

**Explanation**

Given:

A =

B =

For addition of two or more than two matrices there order should be same.

Order of Matrix A = 2 x 2

Order of Matrix B = 2 x 2

So, we add them

A + B = +

A + B =

A + B =

**Question 2**

If A = and B = then, find A + B ?

**Explanation**

Given:

A =

B =

For addition of two or more than two matrices there order should be same.

Order of Matrix A = 2 x 3

Order of Matrix B = 2 x 3

So, we add them

A + B = +

A + B =

A + B =

## Example based on Subtraction of Matrices

**Question 1**

If A = and B = then, find A – B ?

**Explanation**

Given:

A =

B =

For subtraction of two or more than two matrices there order should be same.

Order of Matrix A = 2 x 2

Order of Matrix B = 2 x 2

So, we subtract them

A – B = +

A – B =

A – B =

**Question 2**

If A = and B = then, find A – B ?

**Explanation**

Given:

A =

B =

For subtraction of two or more than two matrices there order should be same.

Order of Matrix A = 2 x 3

Order of Matrix B = 2 x 3

So, we subtract them

A – B = +

A – B =

A – B =
