Step 1
Given: A=[403501]B=[5122]C=[1111]
To find: B-A
Step 2
To subtract two matrices, they should have the same order.
The order of matrix B is 2×2 and the order of matrix A is 3×2
Since they are of different orders, the matrices B and A cannot be subtracted.
Thus, the given operation is not defined.
