Maybe someone can help me.

When I define two matrices such as G={{1,2},{3,4}}  and H={{5,6,},{7,8}} and
then perform an operation such as multiplication, I get the correct result.
But, if I add  MatrixForm to each matrix first and then perform the
operation, the operation is not evaluated.  The output is simply two
Standard Form expressions with no result.

I appreciate any help.
