I need to know how to perform logical operations such as subtraction and addition between columns that do not have the same size.
For example, I have a column that will always have 60 rows.
However, the second column will change every time I try (49, 54 or 58).
How to perform this operation between these columns in matlab?

By the standard definition of addition and subtraction, you cannot.
What would you expect, for example, the result of subtracting [1; 2; 3] from the vector [4; 5; 6; 7; 8] to be and why? To put it another way, what should x be in the code below?
x = yourSubtraction([4; 5; 6; 7; 8], [1; 2; 3])
