##### Calculate the size of a square matrix (n x n) where the elements are present at (i + j) >= n+1.

Calculate the size of a square matrix (n x n) where the elements are present at (i + j) >= n+1.

Calculate the size of a square matrix (n x n) where the elements are present at (i + j) >= n+1.

This is a simple one.

when you draw an n x n matrix like below:

So, you have (1+ 2 + 3 + 4 + .... n-1 + n = ) n(n+1)/2 places where you have elements present. How the size depends on the data type being stored in the array.

Hence size = n(n+1)/2 * sizeof(data_type)

wht does it mean (i + j) >= n+1

this is the condition that index of ith row and jth column is greater than or equal to (n+1)

@shivani

if i =1 and j=1 and if we have 3*3 matrix than

1+1>=3 not possible

1+2>=3 wht does it mean in terms of elements

you can see it as how many elements in each row satisfy the given condition and sum up all the elements.

Ex. in 1st column 1 element satisfies , in 2nd column 2 elements satisfy ,... likewise for nth column n elements satisfy.

so , its ∑n = n(n+1)/2
