# C++ Program to Interchange elements of first and last rows in matrix

Given a 4 x 4 matrix, we have to interchange the elements of first and last row and show the resulting matrix.
Examples :

```Input: 3 4 5 0
2 6 1 2
2 7 1 2
2 1 1 2
Output: 2 1 1 2
2 6 1 2
2 7 1 2
3 4 5 0

Input: 9 7 5 1
2 3 4 1
5 6 6 5
1 2 3 1
Output: 1 2 3 1
2 3 4 1
5 6 6 5
9 7 5 1```

The approach is very simple, we can simply swap the elements of first and last row of the matrix inorder to get the desired matrix as output.
Below is the implementation of the approach:

## C++

 `// C++ code to swap the element of first``// and last row and display the result``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;`` ` `#define n 4`` ` `void` `interchangeFirstLast(``int` `m[][n])``{``        ``int` `rows = n;``         ` `        ``// Swapping of element between first``        ``// and last rows``        ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < n; i++)``        ``{``            ``int` `t = m[i];``            ``m[i] = m[rows - 1][i];``            ``m[rows - 1][i] = t;``        ``}``} `` ` `// Driver code``int` `main()``{``    ``// input in the array``    ``int` `m[n][n] = {{8, 9, 7, 6},``                   ``{4, 7, 6, 5},``                   ``{3, 2, 1, 8},``                   ``{9, 9, 7, 7}}; ``                 ` `    ``interchangeFirstLast(m); ``     ` `    ``// Printing the interchanged matrix``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < n; i++)``    ``{``        ``for` `(``int` `j = 0; j < n; j++) ``            ``cout << m[i][j] << ``" "``;``        ``cout << endl;``    ``}``}`` ` `// This code is contributed by Anant Agarwal.`

Output :

```9 9 7 7
4 7 6 5
3 2 1 8
8 9 7 6 ```

Time Complexity: O(N), as we are using a loop to traverse N times.

Auxiliary Space: O(1), as we are not using any extra space.
