# Program to check if matrix is upper triangular

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

Examples:

```Input : mat = {{1, 3, 5, 3},
{0, 4, 6, 2},
{0, 0, 2, 5},
{0, 0, 0, 6}};
Output : Matrix is in Upper Triangular form.

Input : mat = {{5, 6, 3, 6},
{0, 4, 6, 6},
{1, 0, 8, 5},
{0, 1, 0, 6}};
Output : Matrix is not in Upper Triangular form.
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.
