Program to print Lower triangular and Upper triangular matrix of an array

Prerequisite – Multidimensional Arrays in C / C++

Given a two dimensional array, Write a program to print lower triangular matrix and upper triangular matrix.

  • Lower triangular matrix is a matrix which contain elements below principle diagonal including principle diagonal elements and rest of the elements are 0.
  • Upper triangular matrix is a matrix which contain elements above principle diagonal including principle diagonal elements and rest of the elements are 0.

LOWER TRIANGULAR :
{\displaystyle \begin{bmatrix} A_{00} & 0 & 0 & ... & 0\\  A_{10} & A_{11} & 0 & ... & 0\\  A_{20} & A_{21} & A_{22} & ... & 0\\  . & . & . & . & .\\  . &  &  &  & \\  . &  &  &  & \\  . &  &  &  & \\  . &  &  &  & \\  . &  &  &  & \\  A_{row0} & A_{row1} & A_{row2} & ... & A_{rowcol} \end{bmatrix}}

UPPER TIRANGULAR :
{\displaystyle \begin{bmatrix} A_{00} & A_{01} & A_{02} & ... & A_{0col}\\  0 & A_{11} & A_{22} & ... & A_{1col}\\  0 & 0 & A_{22} & ... & A_{2col}\\  . & . & . & . & .\\  . &  &  &  & \\  . &  &  &  & \\  . &  &  &  & \\  . &  &  &  & \\  . &  &  &  & \\  0 & 0 & 0 & ... & A_{rowcol} \end{bmatrix}}

Examples :

Input : matrix[3][3] = {1 2 3
                       4 5 6
                       7 8 9}
Output :
Lower : 1 0 0        Upper : 1 2 3
        4 5 0                0 5 6
        7 8 9                0 0 9

Input : matrix[3][3] = {7 8 9
                        3 2 1
                        6 5 4}
Output :
Lower : 7 0 0       Upper : 7 8 9
        3 2 0               0 2 1
        6 5 4               0 0 4

Steps:

  1. For lower triangular matrix, we check the index position i and j i.e row and column respectively. If column position is greater than row position we simply make that position 0.
  2. For upper triangular matrix, we check the index position i and j i.e row and column respectively. If column position is smaller than row position we simply make that position 0.
