# Java Program to Interchange elements of first and last rows in matrix

• Last Updated : 19 Jul, 2022

Given a 4 x 4 matrix, we have to interchange the elements of first and last row and show the resulting matrix.
Examples :

```Input : 3 4 5 0
2 6 1 2
2 7 1 2
2 1 1 2
Output : 2 1 1 2
2 6 1 2
2 7 1 2
3 4 5 0

Input : 9 7 5 1
2 3 4 1
5 6 6 5
1 2 3 1
Output : 1 2 3 1
2 3 4 1
5 6 6 5
9 7 5 1```

The approach is very simple, we can simply swap the elements of first and last row of the matrix inorder to get the desired matrix as output.
Below is the implementation of the approach :

## Java

 `// Java code to swap the element of first` `// and last row and display the result` `import` `java.io.*;`   `public` `class` `Interchange {` `    `  `    ``static` `void` `interchangeFirstLast(``int` `m[][])` `    ``{` `        ``int` `rows = m.length;` `        `  `        ``// swapping of element between first` `        ``// and last rows` `        ``for` `(``int` `i = ``0``; i < m[``0``].length; i++) {` `            ``int` `t = m[``0``][i];` `            ``m[``0``][i] = m[rows-``1``][i];` `            ``m[rows-``1``][i] = t;` `        ``}` `    ``}` `    `  `    ``// Driver code` `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[]) ``throws` `IOException` `    ``{` `        ``// input in the array` `        ``int` `m[][] = { { ``8``, ``9``, ``7``, ``6` `},` `                    ``{ ``4``, ``7``, ``6``, ``5` `},` `                    ``{ ``3``, ``2``, ``1``, ``8` `},` `                    ``{ ``9``, ``9``, ``7``, ``7` `} }; ` `                    `  `        ``interchangeFirstLast(m); ` `        `  `        ``// printing the interchanged matrix` `        ``for` `(``int` `i = ``0``; i < m.length; i++) {` `            ``for` `(``int` `j = ``0``; j < m[``0``].length; j++) ` `                ``System.out.print(m[i][j] + ``" "``);` `            ``System.out.println();` `        ``}` `    ``}` `}`

Output :

```9 9 7 7
4 7 6 5
3 2 1 8
8 9 7 6 ```

Time Complexity: O(N*M), as printing the matrix takes O(N*M) time where N and M are dimensions of the matrix.

Auxiliary Space: O(1), as we are not using any extra space.
