Error : Operator '-' cannot be applied to operands of type 'int[]' and 'int[]'


Hi,I am using C# 3-D arrays program and getting error "Operator '-' cannot be applied to operands of type 'int[]' and 'int[]'", how I can resolve this error my current code is as below :

using System.Text;
using System;

Your decription doesn't explain what you are trying to do but error is you are trying to delete array from array using this line of code

 cost8 = cost8 + Math.Abs(a-b); // not possible

this is not correct code, you can get element of an array and subtract from it like

 cost8 = cost8 + Math.Abs(a[i]-b[j]); // where i, j are integer values

Hope it helps
