# Problem 2160. The 17x17 Problem

This problem is sometimes referred to as the 17x17 challenge. See also Part 1 and Part 2 of this problem. This time, your job is to construct, for the given n, an n-by-n matrix in which there are no rectangles. A rectangle is a formed whenever four instances of the same value appear in the corners of a rectangular region of the matrix.

Examples:

` Input  n = 3`
``` Output a = [ 4 1 2
1 4 3
2 1 1 ]```
``` Input  n = 5
Output a = [ 4 1 2 4 1
3 3 2 1 4
3 2 4 1 1
1 4 3 2 2
1 1 1 4 4 ]```

The answer for a given n is not unique. The test suite will just guarantee that there are no rectangles present.

Note 1. I am using Alfonso's solution 191508 from problem 514 as my testing code. Cody in the service of Cody!

Note 2. You can easily answer this problem with a pre-computed response. You could do that, but it would be lame. We want to see your code!
