Solution

Given a string representing a matrix of numbers, return the rows and columns of that matrix.

So given a string with embedded newlines like:

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

representing this matrix:

``````    1  2  3
|---------
1 | 9  8  7
2 | 5  3  2
3 | 6  6  7
``````

your code should be able to spit out:

• A list of the rows, reading each row left-to-right while moving top-to-bottom across the rows,
• A list of the columns, reading each column top-to-bottom while moving from left-to-right.

The rows for our example matrix:

• 9, 8, 7
• 5, 3, 2
• 6, 6, 7

And its columns:

• 9, 5, 6
• 8, 3, 6
• 7, 2, 7

Setup

Go through the setup instructions for Java to install the necessary dependencies:

Running the tests

You can run all the tests for an exercise by entering the following in your terminal:

``````\$ gradle test
``````

Use `gradlew.bat` if you're on Windows

In the test suites all tests but the first have been skipped.

Once you get a test passing, you can enable the next one by removing the `@Ignore("Remove to run test")` annotation.
