﻿ C : Check whether a given matrix is an identity matrix

# C Exercises: Check whether a given matrix is an identity matrix

## C Array: Exercise-31 with Solution

Write a program in C to check whether a given matrix is an identity matrix.

Visual Presentation: Sample Solution:

C Code:

``````#include <stdio.h>

// In a square matrix, if all the main diagonal elements are 1's and
// all the remaining elements are 0's, it is called an Identity Matrix.
int main() {
int arr1;
int r1, c1;
int i, j, yn = 1;

// Display the purpose of the program
printf("\n\n Check whether a given matrix is an identity matrix :\n");
printf("-----------------------------------------------------------\n");

// Input the number of Rows for the matrix
printf("Input number of Rows for the matrix :");
scanf("%d", &r1);

// Input the number of Columns for the matrix
printf("Input number of Columns for the matrix :");
scanf("%d", &c1);

// Input elements into the matrix
printf("Input elements in the matrix :\n");
for(i = 0; i < r1; i++) {
for(j = 0; j < c1; j++) {
printf("element - [%d],[%d] : ", i, j);
scanf("%d", &arr1[i][j]);
}
}

// Display the matrix
printf("The matrix is :\n");
for(i = 0; i < r1; i++) {
for(j = 0; j < c1 ;j++) {
printf("% 4d", arr1[i][j]);
}
printf("\n");
}

// Check whether the matrix is an identity matrix or not
for(i = 0; i < r1; i++) {
for(j = 0; j < c1; j++) {
if (arr1[i][j] != 1 && arr1[j][i] != 0) {
yn = 0;
break;
}
}
}

// Display the result
if(yn == 1) {
printf(" The matrix is an identity matrix.\n\n");
} else {
printf(" The matrix is not an identity matrix.\n\n");
}

return 0;
}
```
```

Sample Output:

``` Check whether a given matrix is an identity matrix :
-----------------------------------------------------------
Input number of Rows for the matrix :3
Input number of Columns for the matrix :3
Input elements in the first matrix :
element - , : 1
element - , : 0
element - , : 0
element - , : 0
element - , : 1
element - , : 0
element - , : 0
element - , : 0
element - , : 1
The matrix is :
1   0   0
0   1   0
0   0   1
The matrix is an identity matrix.
```
