# Program to add two integers of given base

• Difficulty Level : Medium
• Last Updated : 11 Jun, 2021

Given three integers X, Y and B, where X and Y are Base-B integers. The task is to find the sum of integers X and Y.

Examples:

```Input: X = 123, Y = 234, B = 6
Output: 401
Explanation:
Sum of two integers in base 6 -
1 1
1 2 3
+    2 3 4
-------------
4 0 1

Input: X = 546, Y = 248 B = 9
Output: 805
Explanation:
Sum of two integers in base 9 -
1 1
5 4 6
+    2 4 8
-------------
8 0 5   ```

Approach: The idea is to use the fact that whenever two digits of the numbers are added, then the place value will be the modulo of the sum of digits by the base whereas carry will be the integer division of the sum of digits by base. i.e.

```Let two digits of the number be D1 and D2 -
Place Value = (D1 + D2) % B

Carry = (D1 + D2) / B```

Similarly, Add every digit from the last to get the desired result.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation to find the``// sum of two integers of base B` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to find the sum of``// two integers of base B``string sumBaseB(string a,``      ``string b, ``int` `base)``{``    ``int` `len_a, len_b;` `    ``len_a = a.size();``    ``len_b = b.size();` `    ``string sum, s;``    ``s = ``""``;``    ``sum = ``""``;` `    ``int` `diff;``    ``diff = ``abs``(len_a - len_b);``    ` `    ``// Padding 0 in front of the``    ``// number to make both numbers equal``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 1; i <= diff; i++)``        ``s += ``"0"``;``    ` `    ``// Condition to check if the strings``    ``// have lengths mis-match``    ``if` `(len_a < len_b)``        ``a = s + a;``    ``else``        ``b = s + b;` `    ``int` `curr, carry = 0;``    ` `    ``// Loop to find the find the sum``    ``// of two integers of base B``    ``for` `(``int` `i = max(len_a, len_b) - 1;``                           ``i > -1; i--) {``        ` `        ``// Current Place value for``        ``// the resultant sum``        ``curr = carry + (a[i] - ``'0'``) +``                       ``(b[i] - ``'0'``);` `        ``// Update carry``        ``carry = curr / base;` `        ``// Find current digit``        ``curr = curr % base;` `        ``// Update sum result``        ``sum = (``char``)(curr + ``'0'``) + sum;``    ``}``    ``if` `(carry > 0)``        ``sum = (``char``)(carry + ``'0'``) + sum;``    ``return` `sum;``}` `// Driver Code``int` `main()``{``    ``string a, b, sum;``    ``int` `base;``    ``a = ``"123"``;``    ``b = ``"234"``;``    ``base = 6;``    ` `    ``// Function Call``    ``sum = sumBaseB(a, b, base);``    ``cout << sum << endl;``    ``return` `0;``}`
