# How to store Data Triplet in a Vector in C++?

• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 06 Jul, 2017

Given a vector, how can we store 3 elements in one cell of vector.

Examples:

```Input : 2 5 10
3 6 15
Output : (2, 5, 10)  // In first cell of vector
(3, 6, 15)  // In second cell of vector
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

One solution is to create a user defined class or structure. We create a structure with three members, then create a vector of this structure.

 `// C++ program to store data triplet in a vector``// using user defined structure.``#include``using` `namespace` `std;`` ` `struct` `Test``{``   ``int` `x, y, z;``};`` ` `int` `main()``{``    ``// Creating a vector of Test``    ``vector myvec;`` ` `    ``// Inserting elements into vector. First``    ``// value is assigned to x, second to y``    ``// and third to z.``    ``myvec.push_back({2, 31, 102});``    ``myvec.push_back({5, 23, 114});``    ``myvec.push_back({9, 10, 158});`` ` `    ``int` `s = myvec.size();``    ``for` `(``int` `i=0;i

Output :

```2, 31, 102
5, 23, 114
9, 10, 158
```

Another solution is to use pair class in C++ STL. We make a pair with first element as normal element and second element as another pair, therefore storing 3 elements simultaneously.

 `// C++ program to store data triplet in a vector``// using pair class``#include``using` `namespace` `std;`` ` `int` `main()``{``    ``// We make a pair with first element as normal``    ``// element and second element as another pair.``    ``// therefore 3 elements simultaneously.``    ``vector< pair<``int``, pair<``int``, ``int``> > > myvec;`` ` `    ``// For inserting element in pair use``    ``// make_pair().``    ``myvec.push_back(make_pair(2, make_pair(31, 102)));``    ``myvec.push_back(make_pair(5, make_pair(23, 114)));``    ``myvec.push_back(make_pair(9, make_pair(10, 158)));`` ` `    ``int` `s = myvec.size();``    ``for` `(``int` `i=0; i

Output:

```2, 31, 102
5, 23, 114
9, 10, 158
```
