# C++ Program to Print Matrix in Z form

• Last Updated : 05 Dec, 2018

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
```
