There are a number of ways this can be solved. First, you could get rid of the curly braces in your definition of A and B. That is defining
A = Table[((6.67/10^8)*157.85)/(0.225 - x)^2, {x, 0., 0.007245,0.001}]
B = Table[(Pi^2/420^2)*x, {x, 0, 0.007245, 0.001}]
Now both A and B will be vectors as will be A-B and ListPlot will not complain.
However, to me the simplest is to work directly with the initial table. That is
data=Table[{((6.67/10^8)*157.85)/(0.225 - x)^2, (Pi^2/420^2)*x}, {x, 0.,0.007245, 0.001}];
ListPlot[Subtract@@@data];
But using your definition of A and B
ListPlot[Flatten[A-B]];
will work just fine. This is nothing more than removing one level of curly braces which you describe as "too complicated". I wonder what you are doing when you "delete the curly braces" that you find "too complicated".
