In this tutorial, we are going to write a program which finds a row with a maximum number of 1's from a matrix using the map function.

Let's say we have the following matrix.

matrix = [ [0, 0, 1], [1, 1, 1], [1, 1, 0] ]

We can write a program in different ways. But, using map function, we will follow the below procedure.

• Initialise the matrix.
• Find the number of 1's in every row using map function. Store them in a list.
• Print the max from the list.

## Example

## initializing the matrix
matrix = [
[0, 0, 1],
[1, 1, 1],
[1, 1, 0]
]
## function to find number of 1's in a row
def number_of_ones(row):
count = 0
for i in row:
if i is 1:
count += 1
return count
## finding the number of 1's in every row
## map returns an object which we converted into a list
ones_count = list(map(number_of_ones, matrix))
## printing the index of max number from the list
print(ones_count.index(max(ones_count)))

## Output

If you run the above program, you will get the following result.
