Oops! Something went wrong while submitting the form.  # Matrix Subtraction Problem Statement

Given two matrices of the same dimensions, return the resultant matrix of their subtraction.

## Example

``````{
"matrix1": [
[1, 2, 3],
[10, 11, 12]
],
"matrix2": [
[7, 8, 9],
[4, 5, 6]
]
}
``````

Output:

``````[
[-6, -6, -6],
[6, 6, 6]
]
``````

## Notes

The two matrix operands of the subtraction operation are provided as two arguments, `matrix1` and `matrix2`, to the function. The function should return the result of the subtraction of `matrix2` from `matrix1`.

Constraints:

• 1 <= number of rows, number of columns <= 500
• 1 <= value of matrix elements <= 103

## Code For Matrix Subtraction Solution: Iterative

``````/*
Asymptotic complexity in terms of the number of rows ( = \`n\`) and the number of columns ( = \`m\`):
* Time: O(n * m).
* Auxiliary space: O(1).
* Total space: O(n * m).
*/

vector<vector<int>> matrix_subtraction(vector<vector<int>> &matrix1, vector<vector<int>> &matrix2) {
int number_of_rows = matrix1.size();
int number_of_columns = matrix1.size();

// We'll store the result of the subtraction operation in the argument variable \`matrix1\` in-place and return it
// at the end. This way, we won't need any additional memory space for the resultant matrix, and so the auxiliary
// space complexity would stay at O(1).
for(int i = 0; i < number_of_rows; i++){
for(int j = 0; j < number_of_columns; j++){
matrix1[i][j] = matrix1[i][j] - matrix2[i][j];
}
}

return matrix1;
}

``````

We hope that these solutions to the matrix subtraction problem have helped you level up your coding skills. You can expect problems like these at top tech companies like Amazon and Google.
