Choose two elements from the given array such that their sum is not present in any of the arrays

  • Last Updated : 01 Apr, 2021

Given two arrays A[] and B[], the task is to choose two elements X and Y such that X belongs to A[] and Y belongs to B[] and (X + Y) must not be present in any of the array.
Examples: 

Input: A[] = {3, 2, 2}, B[] = {1, 5, 7, 7, 9} 
Output: 3 9 
3 + 9 = 12 and 12 is not present in 
any of the given arrays.
Input: A[] = {1, 3, 5, 7}, B[] = {7, 5, 3, 1} 
Output: 7 7

Approach: Choose X as the maximum element from A[] and Y as the maximum element from B[]. Now, it is obvious that (X + Y) will be greater than the maximum of both the arrays i.e. it will not be present in any og the arrays.
Below is the implementation of the above approach: 

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find the numbers from
// the given arrays such that their
// sum is not present in any
// of the given array
void findNum(int a[], int n, int b[], int m)
{
    // Find the maximum element
    // from both the arrays
    int x = *max_element(a, a + n);
    int y = *max_element(b, b + m);
    cout << x << " " << y;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int a[] = { 3, 2, 2 };
    int n = sizeof(a) / sizeof(int);
    int b[] = { 1, 5, 7, 7, 9 };
    int m = sizeof(b) / sizeof(int);
 
    findNum(a, n, b, m);
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation of the approach
class GFG
{
     
// find maximum element in an array
static int max_element(int a[], int n)
{
    int m = Integer.MIN_VALUE;
     
    for(int i = 0; i < n; i++)
        m = Math.max(m, a[i]);
     
    return m;
}
 
// Function to find the numbers from
// the given arrays such that their
// sum is not present in any
// of the given array
static void findNum(int a[], int n,
                    int b[], int m)
{
    // Find the maximum element
    // from both the arrays
    int x = max_element(a, n);
    int y = max_element(b, m);
    System.out.print(x + " " + y);
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main(String args[])
{
    int a[] = { 3, 2, 2 };
    int n = a.length;
    int b[] = { 1, 5, 7, 7, 9 };
    int m = b.length;
 
    findNum(a, n, b, m);
}
}

Python3




# Python3 implementation of the approach
 
# Function to find the numbers from

def findNum(a, n, b, m) :
 
    # Find the maximum element
    # from both the arrays
    x = max(a);
    y = max(b);
    print(x, y);
 
# Driver code
if __name__ == "__main__" :
 
    a = [ 3, 2, 2 ];
    n = len(a);
     
    b = [ 1, 5, 7, 7, 9 ];
    m = len(b);
 
    findNum(a, n, b, m);

class GFG
{
     
    // find maximum element in an array
    static int max_element(int []a, int n)
    {
        int m = int.MinValue;
         
        for(int i = 0; i < n; i++)
            m = Math.Max(m, a[i]);
         
        return m;
