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]]
