Evaluate an array expression with numbers, + and –

  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 27 May, 2021

Given an array arr[] of string type which consists of strings “+”, “-” and Numbers. Find the sum of the given array. 
Examples : 
 

Input : arr[] = {"3", "+", "4", "-", "7", "+", "13"}
Output : Value = 13
The value of expression 3+4-7+13 is 13.

Input : arr[] = { "2", "+", "1", "-8", "+", "13"}
Output : Value = 8

Approach : 
1) First of all, initialize the sum i.e, sum = 0. 
2) Start traversing the array. 
3) As there is string of numbers at every even position of the array, so convert this string into integer and store in a variable value by using stoi function in C++
4) As there is operator at every odd position, check if the operator is ‘+’ or ‘-‘. If it is ‘+’, then add the value to the sum, else subtract from the sum. 
5) Finally, return the sum obtained.
Below is the implementation of the above approach :
 



C++




// C++ program to find sum of given array of
// string type in integer form
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find the sum of given array
int calculateSum(string arr[], int n)
{  
    // if string is empty
    if (n == 0)
       return 0;
 
    string s = arr[0];
 
    // stoi function to convert
    // string into integer
    int value = stoi(s);
    int sum = value;
 
    for (int i = 2; i < n; i = i + 2)
    {
        s = arr[i];
 
        // stoi function to convert
        // string into integer
        int value = stoi(s);
 
        // Find operator
        char operation = arr[i - 1][0];
 
        // If operator is equal to '+',
        // add value in sum variable
        // else subtract
        if (operation == '+')
            sum += value;
        else
            sum -= value;
    }
    return sum;
}
 
// Driver Function
int main()
{
    string arr[] = { "3", "+", "4", "-",
                     "7", "+", "13" };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);  
    cout << calculateSum(arr, n);  
    return 0;
}

        return 0;
        String s = arr[0];
         
        // parseInt function to convert
        // string into integer
        int value = Integer.parseInt(s);
        int sum = value;
     
        for (int i = 2; i < n; i = i + 2)
        {
            s = arr[i];
     
            // parseInt function to convert
            // string into integer
            value = Integer.parseInt(s);
     
            // Find operator
            char operation = arr[i - 1].charAt(0);
     
            // If operator is equal to '+',
