## Problem Statement

#### Given a 2-dimensional matrix of size ‘N’ x ‘M’, rotate the elements of the matrix clockwise.

``````For example:
Input Matrix: [ [ 1, 2, 3 ]
[ 4, 5, 6 ]
[ 7, 8, 9 ] ]

Output Matrix: [ [ 4, 1, 2 ]
[ 7, 5, 3 ]
[ 8, 9, 6 ] ]

The output matrix is generated by rotating the elements of the input matrix in a clockwise direction. Note that every element is rotated only once.

##### Note :
``````You do not need to print anything; it has already been taken care of. Also, update the given matrix in-place.
``````
