# Form an array of distinct elements with each element as sum of an element from each array

Given two arrays, arr1[] and arr2[] of equal size, which contain distinct elements, the task is to find another array with distinct elements such that elements of the third array are formed by the addition of the one-one element of the arr1[] and arr2[].

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {1, 7, 8, 3}, arr2[] = {6, 5, 10, 2}
Output: 3 8 13 18
Explanation:
Index 0: 1 + 2 = 3
Index 1: 3 + 5 = 8
Index 2: 7 + 6 = 13
Index 3: 8 + 10 = 18
The elements of the array are distinct.

Input: arr1[] = {15, 20, 3}, arr2[] = {5, 4, 3}
Output: 6 19 25
Explanation:
Index 0: 3 + 3 = 6
Index 1: 15 + 4 = 19
Index 2: 20 + 5 = 25
The elements of the array are distinct.

Approach: The key observation in this problem is that both arrays contain distinct elements and if we sort the array, then the sum of corresponding elements of the array will also form distinct elements.
The step-by-step algorithm for the above approach is described below-

• Sort both the arrays in an increasing or decreasing order.
• Initialize another array(say arr3[]) to store the distinct elements formed by the sum of two elements of the array
• Iterate over a loop from 0 to the length of the array
• Elements of the third array will be the sum of the elements of the first two arrays-
` arr3[i] = arr1[i] + arr2[i]`

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

Output:

Performance Analysis:

• Time Complexity: As in the above approach, there is sorting the array of size N which takes O(N*logN) time, Hence the Time Complexity will be O(N*logN).
• Auxiliary Space: As in the above approach, extra space for array c is being used, Hence the space complexity will be O(N).
