Matter, Antimatter and Einstein’s equation

It is my understanding that when antimatter comes in contact with matter that there is nothing left but pure energy.

And since energy and matter are interchangeable (E=Mc2) doesn’t that mean you are actually left with all matter and no antimatter?

Asked Ken

Answer:

The equation E = mc2 tells about mass – energy relation and both matter and antimatter has a positive mass.
