# C Program to sort the matrix rows and columns

Levels of difficulty: / perform operation:

C Program to sort the matrix rows and columns. This C program accept a order MxN Matrix, and sort all rows of the matrix in ascending order and all columns in descending order . In this program, we use the for statement to read two dimension arrays.

# Program

```#include <stdio.h>
void main () {
static int ma[10][10],mb[10][10];
int i,j,k,a,m,n;
printf ("Enter the order of the matrix \n");
scanf ("%d %d", &m,&n);
printf ("Enter co-efficients of the matrix \n");
for (i=0;i<m;++i) {
for (j=0;j<n;++j) {
scanf ("%d",&ma[i][j]);
mb[i][j] = ma[i][j];
}
}
printf ("The given matrix is \n");
for (i=0;i<m;++i) {
for (j=0;j<n;++j) {
printf (" %d",ma[i][j]);
}
printf ("\n");
}
printf ("After arranging rows in ascending order\n");
for (i=0;i<m;++i) {
for (j=0;j<n;++j) {
for (k=(j+1);k<n;++k) {
if (ma[i][j] > ma[i][k]) {
a = ma[i][j];
ma[i][j] = ma[i][k];
ma[i][k] = a;
}
}
}
}
/* End of outer for loop*/
for (i=0;i<m;++i) {
for (j=0;j<n;++j) {
printf (" %d",ma[i][j]);
}
printf ("\n");
}
printf ("After arranging the columns in descending order \n");
for (j=0;j<n;++j) {
for (i=0;i<m;++i) {
for (k=i+1;k<m;++k) {
if (mb[i][j] < mb[k][j]) {
a = mb[i][j];
mb[i][j] = mb[k][j];
mb[k][j] = a;
}
}
}
}
/* End of outer for loop*/
for (i=0;i<m;++i) {
for (j=0;j<n;++j) {
printf (" %d",mb[i][j]);
}
printf ("\n");
