Find column with maximum sum in a Matrix using C++.

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have a matrix of size M x N. We have to find the column, that has a maximum sum. In this program we will not follow some tricky approach, we will traverse the array column-wise, then get the sum of each column, if the sum is the max, then print the sum and the column index.

Example

#include<iostream>
#define M 5
#define N 5
using namespace std;
int colSum(int colIndex, int mat[M][N]){
int sum = 0;
for(int i = 0; i<M; i++){
sum += mat[i][colIndex];
}
return sum;
}
void maxColumnSum(int mat[M][N]) {
int index = -1;
int maxSum = INT_MIN;
for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) {
int sum = colSum(i, mat);
if (sum > maxSum) {
maxSum = sum;
index = i;
}
}
cout << "Index: " << index << ", Column Sum: " << maxSum;
}
int main() {
int mat[M][N] = {
{ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 },
{ 5, 3, 1, 4, 2 },
{ 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 },
{ 0, 6, 3, 4, 12 },
{ 9, 7, 12, 4, 3 },
};
maxColumnSum(mat);
}

Output

Index: 4, Column Sum: 31
