Define A and B as same sized lists or arrays and then just write:

C = A + 1/2 B

But symbols that begin with capitals could conflict with Mathematica symbols
so I woul use names like:

cVector = aVector + 1/2 bVector

cMatrix = aMatrix + 1/2 bMatrix

Of course, you have to fill aVector and bVector with values to begin with.
Look up CORE LANGUAGE, Lists and DATA MANIPULATION, Arrays in the
Documentation Center.

I want to subtract array A by 1/2 array B and put it in array C.  I need
something like this except more complicated later.  This is what I have thus
