Given a square matrix, find out count of numbers that are same in same row and same in both primary and secondary diagonals.
Input : 1 2 1 4 5 2 0 5 1 Output : 2 Primary diagonal is 1 5 1 Secondary diagonal is 1 5 0 Two elements (1 and 5) match in two diagonals and same. Input : 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 Output : 1 Primary diagonal is 1 1 1 Secondary diagonal is 0 1 0 Only one element is same.
We can achieve this in O(n) time, O(1) space and only one traversal. We can find current element in i-th row of primary diagonal as mat[i][i] and i-th element of secondary diagonal as mat[i][n-i-1].
