Program to check if the points are parallel to X axis or Y axis

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 28 Apr, 2021

Given n points, we need to check if these n points are parallel to X axis or Y axis or to No axis.

Input : x[] = {0, 0, 0, 0, 0|
        y[] = {9, 2, 1, 3, 4}
Output : Parallel to Y Axis

Input : x[] = {1, 2, 3|
        y[] = {9, 2, 1}
Output : Not Parallel to X or Y Axis

Approach

To find the points parallel to X or Y axis just check if the points are same for any axis or not. If all the points on X axis are same then the line is parallel to Y axis. If all the points on Y axis are same so the line is parallel to X axis. If none of the cases is true, then it is not parallel to any axis. 
Input the value N. And then Input the value of points in a

    bool x = true, y = true;
 
    // checking for parallel to X and Y
    // axis condition
    for (int i = 0; i < n - 1; i++) {
