Absolute Difference of all pairwise consecutive elements in an array

Given an array of integers of N elements. The task is to print the absolute difference of all of the pairwise consecutive elements.

Pairwise consecutive pairs of an array of size N are (a[i], a[i+1]) for all i ranging from 0 to N-2

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {8, 5, 4, 3, 15, 20}
Output: 3, 1, 1, 12, 5

Input: arr[] = {5, 10, 15, 20}
Output: 5, 5, 5

Approach: The solution is to traverse the array and calculate and print the absolute difference of every pair (arr[i], arr[i+1]).

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

void pairwiseDifference(int arr[], int n)
{
    int diff;
    for (int i = 0; i < n - 1; i++) {
  
        // absolute difference between
        // consecutive numbers
        diff = abs(arr[i] - arr[i + 1]);
        cout << diff << " ";
    }
}
  
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 4, 10, 15, 5, 6 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
  
    pairwiseDifference(arr, n);
  
    return 0;
}
