Find the intersection of two Matrices

Given two matrix A[][] and B[][] of same order m*n. The task is to find the intersection of both matrix as C, where:

  • Cij = Aij if Aij = Bij
  • C = “*”, otherwise.

Examples:

Input : 
A[N][N] = {{2, 4, 6, 8},
           {1, 3, 5, 7},
           {8, 6, 4, 2},
           {7, 5, 3, 1}};

B[N][N] = {{0, 4, 3, 8},
           {1, 3, 5, 7},
           {8, 3, 6, 2},
           {4, 5, 3, 4}};
Output :
* 4 * 8 
1 3 5 7 
8 * * 2 
* 5 3 * 

As intersection of two set is a set which includes common elements to both set, similarly intersection of two matrix will include only corresponding common element and place “*” at the position of rest unmatching elements.



For finding the intersection of both matrix simply iterate over their size and print * if element at particular position in both matrix are not equal else print the element.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
