How to Add Two Matrices ?

In this article, you will get aware about how to add any two given matrix. Let's suppse there are two given matrix, matrix A and Matrix B. The value of Matrix A is:

1  2
3  4

And the value of Matrix B is:

5  6
7  8

Then its addition goes like:

matrix addition

So we have another matrix, matrix C. The value of matrix C is:

6   8
10  12

This is the addition of two given matrix A and B.
