Print a 2 D Array or Matrix in Java
• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 11 Dec, 2018

Method 1 (Simple Traversal)
We can find number of rows in a matrix mat[][] using mat.length. To find number of columns in i-th row, we use mat[i].length.

 `// Java program to print the elements of ` `// a 2 D array or matrix ` `import` `java.io.*; ` `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``public` `static` `void` `print2D(``int` `mat[][]) ` `    ``{ ` `        ``// Loop through all rows ` `        ``for` `(``int` `i = ``0``; i < mat.length; i++) ` ` `  `            ``// Loop through all elements of current row ` `            ``for` `(``int` `j = ``0``; j < mat[i].length; j++) ` `                ``System.out.print(mat[i][j] + ``" "``); ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[]) ``throws` `IOException ` `    ``{ ` `        ``int` `mat[][] = { { ``1``, ``2``, ``3``, ``4` `}, ` `                        ``{ ``5``, ``6``, ``7``, ``8` `}, ` `                        ``{ ``9``, ``10``, ``11``, ``12` `} }; ` `        ``print2D(mat); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output :

`1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 `

Method 2 (Using for-each loop)
This is similar to above. Instead of simple for loops, we use for each loop here.

 `// Java program to print the elements of ` `// a 2 D array or matrix using for-each ` `import` `java.io.*; ` `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``public` `static` `void` `print2D(``int` `mat[][]) ` `    ``{ ` `        ``// Loop through all rows ` `        ``for` `(``int``[] row : mat) ` ` `  `            ``// Loop through all columns of current row ` `            ``for` `(``int` `x : row) ` `                ``System.out.print(x + ``" "``); ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[]) ``throws` `IOException ` `    ``{ ` `        ``int` `mat[][] = { { ``1``, ``2``, ``3``, ``4` `}, ` `                        ``{ ``5``, ``6``, ``7``, ``8` `}, ` `                        ``{ ``9``, ``10``, ``11``, ``12` `} }; ` `        ``print2D(mat); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output :

`1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 `

Method 3 (Prints in matrix style Using Arrays.toString())
Arrays.toString(row) converts the complete row is converted as string and then each row is printed in a separate line.

 `// Java program to print the elements of ` `// a 2 D array or matrix using toString() ` `import` `java.io.*; ` `import` `java.util.*; ` `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``public` `static` `void` `print2D(``int` `mat[][]) ` `    ``{ ` `        ``// Loop through all rows ` `        ``for` `(``int``[] row : mat) ` ` `  `            ``// converting each row as string ` `            ``// and then printing in a separate line ` `            ``System.out.println(Arrays.toString(row)); ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[]) ``throws` `IOException ` `    ``{ ` `        ``int` `mat[][] = { { ``1``, ``2``, ``3``, ``4` `}, ` `                        ``{ ``5``, ``6``, ``7``, ``8` `}, ` `                        ``{ ``9``, ``10``, ``11``, ``12` `} }; ` `        ``print2D(mat); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output :

```[1, 2, 3, 4]
[5, 6, 7, 8]
[9, 10, 11, 12]
```
