Problem: Write a C program to check whether the given matrix is an identity matrix or not.

In linear algebra, the identity matrix (sometimes ambiguously called a unit matrix) of size n is the n × n square matrix with ones on the main diagonal and zeros elsewhere.

Identity Matrix

Steps to check identity matrix in C:

  1. Input a matrix.
  2. Iterate through the elements of the matrix:
    • For i==j check if matrix[i][i] != 1 and for i!=j check if matrix[i][j] != 0:
      • If any element satisfies any of the above conditions then the input matrix is not an identity matrix.
  3. Otherwise, the matrix is an identity matrix.

Here is the implementation of the steps in C:


Identity Matrix

In the program, we have used a 2D array to represent the matrix and for loops to iterate through the matrix elements.

In this programming example, we learned to check the identity matrix in C using the ‘for’ loop and ‘if’ condition.
