Given a square matrix, find out count of numbers that are same in same row and same in both primary and secondary diagonals.

**Examples : **

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].

## C++

`// CPP program to find common elements in ` `// two diagonals. ` `#include <iostream> ` `#define MAX 100 ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// Returns count of row wise same ` `// elements in two diagonals of ` `// mat[n][n] ` `int` `countCommon(` `int` `mat[][MAX], ` `int` `n) ` `{ ` ` ` `int` `res = 0; ` ` ` `for` `(` `int` `i=0;i<n;i++) ` ` ` `if` `(mat[i][i] == mat[i][n-i-1]) ` ` ` `res++; ` ` ` `return` `res; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver Code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `int` `mat[][MAX] = {{1, 2, 3}, ` ` ` `{4, 5, 6}, ` ` ` `{7, 8, 9}}; ` ` ` `cout << countCommon(mat, 3); ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
