Given a target, tell whether it is present in the matrix or not.

Problem statement

Implement a function that tells whether a given target is present in the sorted matrix or not.


The inputs are a sorted matrix and the target that needs to be checked if it is present or not.

Sample input

matrix  = {{10, 11, 12, 13},
          {14, 15, 16, 17},
          {27, 29, 30, 31},
