# C++ Program to Print Matrix in Z form

Given a square matrix of order n*n, we need to print elements of the matrix in Z form

```Examples:
Input : mat[][] =  {1, 2, 3,
4, 5, 6,
7, 8, 9}
Output : 1 2 3 5 7 8 9

Input : mat[][] = {5, 19, 8, 7,
4, 1, 14, 8,
2, 20, 1, 9,
1, 2, 55, 4}
Output: 5 19 8 7 14 20 1 2 55 4
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

 `// CPP program to print a square matrix in Z form ` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` `const` `int` `MAX = 100; ` ` `  `// Function to print a square matrix in Z form ` `void` `printZform(``int` `mat[][MAX], ``int` `n) ` `{ ` `    ``// print first row ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < n; i++) ` `        ``cout << mat[i] << ``" "``; ` ` `  `    ``// Print diagonal ` `    ``int` `i = 1, j = n - 2; ` `    ``while` `(i < n && j >= 0) ``// print diagonal ` `    ``{ ` `        ``cout << mat[i][j] << ``" "``; ` `        ``i++; ` `        ``j--; ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``// Print last row ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 1; i < n; i++) ` `        ``cout << mat[n - 1][i] << ``" "``; ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver function ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``int` `mat[][MAX] = { { 4, 5, 6, 8 }, ` `                       ``{ 1, 2, 3, 1 }, ` `                       ``{ 7, 8, 9, 4 }, ` `                       ``{ 1, 8, 7, 5 } }; ` `    ``printZform(mat, 4); ` `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

Output:

```4 5 6 8 3 8 1 8 7 5
```
