I suspect that p was not defined as you thought because the method works.

mat1 = Array[a, {3, 3}]
mat2 = Array[b, {3, 3}]

mat1 - mat2

gives your expected result.

am fairly new to mathematica. simply want to add two 3x3
matrices together(actually, subtract). if they are called
m and p, if i type m-p, mathematica treats the second matrix p as a scalar
and subtracts that entire 3x3 matrix p from each entry of m. the help
contents do not seem to address this issue!!! there must be a simple way of
doing this??

thanks in advance for any help
