# Include matrix 
require "matrix"
   
# Initialize a matrix 
mat1 = Matrix[[1, 21], [31, 18]]  
   
# Prints the value of mat1.symmetric?()
puts  mat1.symmetric?()

Output:

true

Example 2:




# Ruby program for symmetric?() method in Matrix

# Initialize a matrix 
mat1 = Matrix[[1, 1, 5], [1, 1, 5], [1, 2, 5]]
