I have a matrix of order n say M. If I do sum(M) I would get the a vector in which all the entries would give me the sum of elements of each row of M.

How can I find the sum of all elements of M? Does there exist any command which can return the sum of all elements of a matrix?

Please help me out.

Like this

sage: M = matrix(2, 2, [1, 2, 3, 4])                                                   
sage: sum(M.coefficients())
