How did you came up with the equation? I mean I'm new to programming and I need tips.
All you need is to have an understanding of mathematics and observe the mathematical expression. For example in the diagonal diffrence in a 3X3 array we have the following values for i,j respectively:
0,0 0,1 0,2
1,0 1,1 1,2
2,0 2,2 2,2
so the primary diagonal is 0,0 1,1 2,2 so it is obvious i=j
the secondary diagonal is 2,0 1,1 0,2 so we can easily observe that i+j=n-1 (2+0=3-1, 1+1=2, 0+2=2)
nothing explained is obvious or as clear as could be.
I agree entirely. This was not a clear solution but clean code. Very confusing to a new coder.
