Step 1
In this question we need to explain the process for subtracting matrices.
Step 2
Explanation:
Let A and B are two matrices of same order,
then A-B can be be obtained by subtracting corresponding entries of A and B i.e. if
then $A-B=\left[\begin{array}{cc}a-e& b-f\\ c-g& d-h\end{array}\right]$
Example: Let
then
$A-B=\left[\begin{array}{cc}3-\left(-1\right)& 4-8\\ -6-4& 5-5\end{array}\right]$
$⇒A-B=\left[\begin{array}{cc}4& -4\\ -10& 0\end{array}\right]$
