The transpose of a matrix is a matrix with the column and row elements switched. For example, the transpose of `[[1, 2], [3, 4]]`

is `[[1, 3], [2, 4]]`

.

## USE `zip()`

TO TRANSPOSE A MATRIX

Pass the rows of the matrix as separate lists to `zip(*iterable)`

using the `*`

operator. Use a loop to iterate through each row. For each row, call `list(iterable)`

on it and add the result into a new list that represents the transpose matrix.

`matrix = [[1, 2], [3, 4]]`

Example matrix

```
```

`zipped_rows = zip(*matrix)`

Zip into a list

`transpose_matrix = [list(row) for row in zipped_rows]`

Transpose matrix

```
```

`print(transpose_matrix)`

OUTPUT

`[[1, 3], [2, 4]]`

## OTHER SOLUTIONS

- This solution is shorter and performs better with larger matrices. However, it requires use of the NumpPy library.
