Diagonal Difference HackerRank solution

Given a square matrix, calculate the absolute difference between the sums of its diagonals.
For example, the square matrix is shown below:

1 2 3
4 5 6
9 8 9

The left-to-right diagonal = 1 + 5 + 9 = 15 The right to left diagonal = 3 + 5 + 9 = 17, Their absolute difference is |15-17| = 2.

in c++

int diagonalDifference(vector<vector<int>> arr,int n) {

    int lft=0,rit=0;

    for(int i=0;i<n;i++){
        lft += arr[i][i];
        rit += arr[(n-i)][(n-i)];
    }

    return abs(rit-lft);

}
