## Scala – Sum of Matrix's Right Diagonal Elements

Here, we will create a 3X3 matrix using a two-dimensional array and then we will read elements of the matrix and then print the right diagonal and the sum of its elements of the matrix on the console screen.

## Scala code to find the sum of right diagonal elements of matrix

The source code to print the sum of the right diagonal of MATRIX is given below. The given program is compiled and executed on the ubuntu 18.04 operating system successfully.

```// Scala program to print the
// sum of right diagonal elements of MATRIX

object Sample {
def main(args: Array[String]) {
var TwoDArr = Array.ofDim[Int](3, 3)
var i: Int = 0
var j: Int = 0

var sum: Int = 0

printf("Enter elements of MATRIX:\n")
i = 0;
while (i < 3) {
j = 0;
while (j < 3) {
printf("ELEMENT(%d)(%d): ", i, j);
j = j + 1;
}
i = i + 1;
}

printf("MATRIX:\n")
i = 0;
while (i < 3) {
j = 0;
while (j < 3) {
printf("%d ", TwoDArr(i)(j));
j = j + 1;
}
i = i + 1;
println();
}

printf("Right diagonal of matrix:\n")
i = 0;
while (i < 3) {
j = 0;
while (j < 3) {
if (i + j == 2) {
sum = sum + TwoDArr(i)(j);
printf("%d ", TwoDArr(i)(j));
} else {
printf(" ");
}
j = j + 1;
}
i = i + 1;
println();
}

printf("Sum of right diagonal elements is: %d\n", sum);
}
}
```

## Output

```Enter elements of MATRIX:
ELEMENT(0)(0): 10
ELEMENT(0)(1): 20
ELEMENT(0)(2): 30
ELEMENT(1)(0): 40
ELEMENT(1)(1): 50
ELEMENT(1)(2): 60
ELEMENT(2)(0): 70
ELEMENT(2)(1): 80
ELEMENT(2)(2): 90
MATRIX:
10 20 30
40 50 60
70 80 90
Right diagonal of matrix:
30
50
70
Sum of right diagonal elements is: 150
```

## Explanation

In the above program, we used an object-oriented approach to create the program. We created an object Sample, and we defined main() function. The main() function is the entry point for the program.

In the main() function, we created a 3X3 matrix using a two-dimensional array, and then we read the elements of the matrix from the user. Then we printed the right diagonal of the matrix and calculated the sum of its elements. After that, we printed the sum of right diagonal elements on the console screen.
