Find all Pairs possible from the given Array
• Difficulty Level : Basic
• Last Updated : 08 Apr, 2021

Given an array arr[] of N integers, the task is to find all the pairs possible from the given array.
Note:

1. (arr[i], arr[i]) is also considered as a valid pair.
2. (arr[i], arr[j]) and (arr[j], arr[i]) are considered as two different pairs.

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {1, 2}
Output: (1, 1), (1, 2), (2, 1), (2, 2).
Input: arr[] = {1, 2, 3}
Output: (1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (3, 1), (3, 2), (3, 3)

Approach:
In order to find all the possible pairs from the array, we need to traverse the array and select the first element of the pair. Then we need to pair this element with all the elements in the array from index 0 to N-1.
Below is the step by step approach:

• Traverse the array and select an element in each traversal.
• For each element selected, traverse the array with help of another loop and form the pair of this element with each element in the array from the second loop.
• The array in the second loop will get executed from its first element to its last element, i.e. from index 0 to N-1.
• Print each pair formed.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation to find all``// Pairs possible from the given Array` `#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to print all possible``// pairs from the array``void` `printPairs(``int` `arr[], ``int` `n)``{` `    ``// Nested loop for all possible pairs``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < n; i++) {``        ``for` `(``int` `j = 0; j < n; j++) {``            ``cout << ``"("` `<< arr[i] << ``", "``                 ``<< arr[j] << ``")"``                 ``<< ``", "``;``        ``}``    ``}``}` `// Driver code``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `arr[] = { 1, 2 };``    ``int` `n = ``sizeof``(arr) / ``sizeof``(arr);` `    ``printPairs(arr, n);` `    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java

 ``
Output:
`(1, 1), (1, 2), (2, 1), (2, 2),`
