In this program, you'll learn to find and print the transpose of a given matrix in Java.

Transpose of a matrix is the process of swapping the rows to columns. For `2x3`

matrix,

Matrix a11 a12 a13 a21 a22 a23 Transposed Matrix a11 a21 a12 a22 a13 a23

```
public class Transpose {
public static void main(String[] args) {
int row = 2, column = 3;
int[][] matrix = { {2, 3, 4}, {5, 6, 4} };
// Display current matrix
display(matrix);
// Transpose the matrix
int[][] transpose = new int[column][row];
for(int i = 0; i < row; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j < column; j++) {
transpose[j][i] = matrix[i][j];
}
}
// Display transposed matrix
display(transpose);
}
public static void display(int[][] matrix) {
System.out.println("The matrix is: ");
for(int[] row : matrix) {
for (int column : row) {
System.out.print(column + " ");
}
System.out.println();
}
}
}
```

When you run the program, the output will be:

The matrix is: 2 3 4 5 6 4 The matrix is: 2 5 3 6 4 4

In the above program, `display()`

function is only used to print the contents of a matrix to the screen.

Here, the given matrix is of form `2x3`

, i.e. `row = 2`

and `column = 3`

.

For the transposed matrix, we change the order of transposed to `3x2`

, i.e. `row = 3`

and `column = 2`

. So, we have `transpose = int[column][row]`

The transpose of the matrix is calculated by simply swapping columns to rows:

transpose[j][i] = matrix[i][j];
