Addition of matrices with the "+" operator should give you a matrix
which would have the corresponding sums. Because matrices are really
vectors that are read in column order you might need to transpose
before you read them out with c().
As always properly formed examples would be appreciated and the form
of the appreciation would probably take the form of tested code.
