Given an array **arr[] **of size **N**, the task is to count possible pairs of array elements **(arr[i], arr[j])** such that **(arr[i] + arr[j]) * (arr[i] – arr[j])** is **0**.

**Examples:**

Input:arr[] = {2, -2, 1, 1}Output :2Explanation:

(arr[0] + arr[1]) * (arr[0] – arr[1]) = 0

(arr[3] + arr[4]) * (arr[3] – arr[4]) = 0

Input:arr[] = {5, 9, -9, -9}Output :3

**Approach: **It can be observed that the equation **(arr[i] + arr[j]) * (arr[i] – arr[j]) = 0 **can be reduced to **arr[i] ^{2} = arr[j]^{2}**. Therefore, the task reduces to counting pairs having absolute value equal. Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

- Initialize an array
**hash[]**to store the frequency of the absolute value of each array element. - Calculate the count of pairs by adding
**(hash[x] * (hash[x] – 1))/ 2**for every array distinct absolute values.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
