# Scala Set splitAt() method with example

The splitAt() method is utilized to split the given set into a prefix/suffix pair at a stated position.

Method Definition: def splitAt(n: Int): (Set[A], Set[A])
Where, n is the position at which we need to split.

Return Type: It returns a pair of sets consisting of the first n elements of this set, and the other elements.

Example #1:

 `// Scala program of splitAt()  ` `// method  ` ` `  `// Creating object  ` `object` `GfG  ` `{  ` ` `  `    ``// Main method  ` `    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])  ` `    ``{  ` `        ``// Creating a set  ` `        ``val` `s``1` `=` `Set(``4``, ``12``, ``2``, ``31``)  ` `         `  `        ``// Applying splitAt method  ` `        ``val` `result ``=` `s``1``.splitAt(``2``) ` `         `  `        ``// Display output ` `        ``println(result) ` `    ``}  ` `}  `

Output:

```(Set(4, 12), Set(2, 31))
```

Example #2:

 `// Scala program of splitAt()  ` `// method  ` ` `  `// Creating object  ` `object` `GfG  ` `{  ` ` `  `    ``// Main method  ` `    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])  ` `    ``{  ` `        ``// Creating a set  ` `        ``val` `s``1` `=` `Set(``1``, ``2``, ``3``, ``4``)  ` `         `  `        ``// Applying splitAt method  ` `        ``val` `result ``=` `s``1``.splitAt(``2``) ` `         `  `        ``// Display output ` `        ``println(result) ` `    ``}  ` `}  `

Output:

```(Set(1, 2),Set(3, 4))
```
