Given two arrays arr1 and arr2 of size n. The task is to iterate both arrays in the foreach loop. Both arrays can combine into a single array using a foreach loop. Array: Arrays in PHP is a type of data structure that allows to storing multiple elements of similar data type under a single variable thereby saving the effort of creating a different variable for every data. The arrays are helpful to create a list of elements of similar types, which can be accessed by using their index or key. Example:
Input : $sides = array('Up', 'Down', 'Left', 'Right')
        $directions = array('North', 'South', 'West', 'East')

Output :
Up => North
Down => South
Left => West
Right => East
Example 1: This example uses foreach loop to display the elements of associative array.
<?php
  
// Declare an associative array
$aso_arr = array(
    "Up"=>"North"
    "Down"=>"South"
    "Left"=>"West"
    "Right"=>"East"
);
  
// Use foreach loop to traverse each
// elements of array and display its
// key and value 
foreach($aso_arr as $side=>$direc) {
    echo $side . " => " . $direc . "\n"
}
  
?>

                    
Output:
Up => North
Down => South
Left => West
Right => East
Example 2: This example uses array to display its index with value.
<?php
  
// Declare an array
$sides = array("Up", "Down", "Left", "Right");
  
// Use foreach loop to display the
// elements of array
foreach($sides as $index => $value) {
    echo "sides[" . $index . "] => " . $value . " \n";
}
  
?>

                    
Output:
sides[0] => Up 
sides[1] => Down 
sides[2] => Left 
sides[3] => Right
Note: Every entry of the indexed array is similar to an associative array in which key is the index number. For example:
$sides = array("00"=>"Up", "01"=>"Down", "02"=>"Left", "03"=>"Right");
$directions = array("00"=>"North", "01"=>"South", "02"=>"West", "03"=>"East");
Since the index are common in all indexed arrays so it can use these indexes to access the value in other arrays. Example 3:
<?php 
  
// Declare and initialize array
$sides = array("Up", "Down", "Left", "Right");
$directions = array("North", "South", "West", "East");
  
// Use foreach loop to display array elements
foreach( $sides as $index => $side ) {
    echo $side . " => " . $directions[$index] . " \n";
}
  
?>

                    
Output:
Up => North 
Down => South 
Left => West 
Right => East
