Given two numbers, return sum of them without using operators + and/or -, and using ++ and/or –.
Input: x = 10, y = 5 Output: 15 Input: x = 10, y = -5 Output: 10
We strongly recommend you to minimize your browser and try this yourself first
The idea is to do y times x++, if y is positive and do y times x– if y is negative.
Thanks to Gaurav Ahirwar for suggesting above solution.
