Matrix operations associativity?

I am currently banging my head on the following problem: I want to split a matrix A in two components A+ and A-.

I define A- as A- = A - A+ and obtain the following disturbing result:

Aminus = A-Aplus;
ans = 0

ans = 1257

Thinking that it may arise from some parenthesation issue, I tried the following.

ans = 1257

ans = 0

Could someone please explain me what's going on?

Thanks a lot!
