# Python: Sort a given matrix in ascending order according to the sum of its rows

## Python List: Exercise - 101 with Solution

Write a Python program to sort a given matrix in ascending order according to the sum of its rows.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````def sort_matrix(M):
result = sorted(M, key=sum)
return result

matrix1 = [[1, 2, 3], [2, 4, 5], [1, 1, 1]]
matrix2 = [[1, 2, 3], [-2, 4, -5], [1, -1, 1]]

print("Original Matrix:")
print(matrix1)
print("\nSort the said matrix in ascending order according to the sum of its rows")
print(sort_matrix(matrix1))
print("\nOriginal Matrix:")
print(matrix2)
print("\nSort the said matrix in ascending order according to the sum of its rows")
print(sort_matrix(matrix2))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original Matrix:
[[1, 2, 3], [2, 4, 5], [1, 1, 1]]

Sort the said matrix in ascending order according to the sum of its rows
[[1, 1, 1], [1, 2, 3], [2, 4, 5]]

Original Matrix:
[[1, 2, 3], [-2, 4, -5], [1, -1, 1]]

Sort the said matrix in ascending order according to the sum of its rows
[[-2, 4, -5], [1, -1, 1], [1, 2, 3]]
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Decapitalizes the first letter of a string:

Example:

```def tips_decapitalize(s, upper_rest=False):
return s[:1].lower() + (s[1:].upper() if upper_rest else s[1:])
print(tips_decapitalize('PythonTips'))
print(tips_decapitalize('PythonTips', True))
```

Output:

```pythonTips
pYTHONTIPS
```
