Sum of matrix element where each elements is integer division of row and column
• Difficulty Level : Medium
• Last Updated : 07 Jun, 2019

Consider a N X N matrix where each element is row number divide by column number (integer division), i.e. mat[i][j] = floor((i+1)/(j+1)) where 0 <= i < n and 0 <= j < n. The task is to find the sum of all matrix element.

Examples :

```Input  : N = 2
Output : 4
2 X 2 matrix with given constraint:
1 0
2 1
Sum of matrix element: 4

Input  : N = 3
Output : 9
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Method 1 (Brute Force):
Run two loops, one for row and another for column and find integer part of (i / j) and add to the answer.

Below is the implementation of this approach:

## C++

 `// C++ program to find sum of matrix element``// where each element is integer division of``// row and column.``#include``using` `namespace` `std;`` ` `// Return sum of matrix element where each element``// is division of its corresponding row and column.``int` `findSum(``int` `n)``{``    ``int` `ans = 0;``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 1; i <= n; i++)   ``// for rows``        ``for` `(``int` `j = 1; j <= n; j++) ``// for columns``            ``ans += (i/j);``    ``return` `ans;``}`` ` `// Driven Program``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `N = 2;``    ``cout << findSum(N) << endl;``    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java

 `// java program to find sum of matrix``// element where each element is integer``// division of row and column.`` ` `import` `java.io.*;`` ` `class` `GFG {``     ` `    ``// Return sum of matrix element ``    ``// where each element is division``    ``// of its corresponding row and``    ``// column.``    ``static` `int` `findSum(``int` `n)``    ``{``        ``int` `ans = ``0``;``         ` `        ``// for rows``        ``for` `(``int` `i = ``1``; i <= n; i++) ``         ` `            ``// for columns``            ``for` `(``int` `j = ``1``; j <= n; j++) ``                ``ans += (i/j);``                 ` `        ``return` `ans;``    ``}``     ` `    ``// Driven Program``    ``public` `static` `void` `main (String[] args) ``    ``{``        ``int` `N = ``2``;``        ``System.out.println( findSum(N));``    ``}``}`` ` `// This code is contributed by anuj_67.`

## Python3

 `# Python 3 program to find sum of ``# matrix element where each element ``# is integer division of row and column. `` ` `# Return sum of matrix element ``# where each element is division ``# of its corresponding row and column. ``def` `findSum(N):``    ``ans ``=` `0``    ``for` `i ``in` `range``(``1``, N ``+` `1``):``        ``for` `j ``in` `range``(``1``, N ``+` `1``):``            ``ans ``+``=` `i ``/``/` `j``    ``return` `ans`` ` `# Driver code``N ``=` `2``print``(findSum(N))`` ` `# This code is contributed ``# by Shrikant13`

## C#

 `// C# program to find the sum of matrix``// element where each element is an integer``// division of row and column.``using` `System;`` ` `class` `GFG {``     ` `    ``// Return sum of matrix element ``    ``// where each element is division``    ``// of its corresponding row and``    ``// column.``    ``static` `int` `findSum(``int` `n)``    ``{``        ``int` `ans = 0;``         ` `        ``// for rows``        ``for` `(``int` `i = 1; i <= n; i++) ``         ` `            ``// for columns``            ``for` `(``int` `j = 1; j <= n; j++) ``                ``ans += (i/j);``                 ` `        ``return` `ans;``    ``}``     ` `    ``// Driven Program``    ``public` `static` `void` `Main () ``    ``{``        ``int` `N = 2;``        ``Console.WriteLine( findSum(N));``    ``}``}`` ` `// This code is contributed by anuj_67.`

Output:

```4

Method 2 (Efficient):
Let N = 9, matrix will be Observe, for each jth column
mat[i][k] = 0, for 1 <= k < j, 1 <= i <= N
mat[i][k] = 1, for j <= k < 2*j, 1 <= i <= N
mat[i][k] = 2, for 2*j <= k < 3*j, 1 <= i <= N
and so on.
So, in each column i, there are i – 1 zeroes, followed by i times 1, followed by i times 2 and so on.

We traverse matrix column by column and sum elements.

## C++

 `// C++ program to find sum of matrix element``// where each element is integer division of``// row and column.``#include``using` `namespace` `std;`` ` `// Return sum of matrix element where each``// element is division of its corresponding``// row and column.``int` `findSum(``int` `n)``{``    ``int` `ans = 0, temp = 0, num;`` ` `    ``// For each column.``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 1; i <= n && temp < n; i++)``    ``{``        ``// count the number of elements of``        ``// each column.
