Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is a matrix addition? (Definition)

The addition of 2 matrices is noted $ M_1 + M_2 $ with $ M_1=[a_{ij}] $ ($ m $ rows and $ n $ columns, with $ m = n $ for a square matrix) and $ M_2=[b_{ij}] $ (of the same size: $ m $ rows and $ n $ columns).

The sum of these two matrices $ M_1 + M_2 = [c_{ij}] $ is a matrix of the same size, ie. $ m $ rows and $ n $ columns, with: $$ \forall i, j \quad c_{ij} = a_{ij}+b_{ij} $$

Important rule: The addition of matrices (matrix A plus matrix B) can only be done with 2 matrices of the same shape/size/dimension (2x2, 2x3, 3x2, 3x3, etc.).

How to add 2 matrices?

The addition of matrix is done entry by entry

Example: $$ \begin{bmatrix} 1 & 2 \\ 3 & 4 \\ 5 & 6 \end{bmatrix} + \begin{bmatrix} 7 & 8 \\ 9 & 10 \\ 11 & 12 \end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} 1+7 & 2+8 \\ 3+9 & 4+10 \\ 5+11 & 6+12 \end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} 8 & 10 \\ 12 & 14 \\ 16 & 18 \end{bmatrix} $$

For all matrices A and B of the same size, A+B = B+A.

How to add 2 matrices in Excel?

A matrix addition in Excel can be achieved by adding the elements with identical coordinates in each matrix.

How to add 2 matrices of different sizes?

The addition operation (or sum) for matrices can only be done with same size matrices (all dimensions possible, provided they are exactly the same: 3x4, 4x3, 4x4, 5x5, etc.). Nevertheless, there is the direct sum operation, which can be used with distinct size matrices.

How to add a scalar to a matrix?

The operation of adding a scalar number to a matrix $ [A] + b $ is not defined, but sometimes it implies the operation $ [A] + [I] b $ with $ I $ the identity matrix of size compatible with A.
