# Program to check if matrix is lower triangular

• Difficulty Level : Basic
• Last Updated : 26 Apr, 2021

Given a square matrix and the task is to check the matrix is in lower triangular form or not. A square matrix is called lower triangular if all the entries above the main diagonal are zero. Examples:

```Input : mat = {{1, 0, 0, 0},
{1, 4, 0, 0},
{4, 6, 2, 0},
{0, 4, 7, 6}};
Output : Matrix is in lower triangular form.

Input : mat = {{1, 0, 0, 0},
{4, 3, 0, 1},
{7, 9, 2, 0},
{8, 5, 3, 6}};
Output : Matrix is not in lower triangular form.```
