Given a 2-D matrix, we need to find sum of all elements present in matrix ?
Input : arr = [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [2, 1, 2]] Output : Sum = 26
This problem can be solved easily using two for loops by iterating whole matrix but we can solve this problem quickly in python using map() function.
What does map() do?
The map() function applies a given function to each item of an iterable(list, tuple etc.) and returns a list of the results. For example see given below example :
[1, 4, 9, 16]
