• Last Updated : 20 May, 2021

Given two strings a and b, form a new string of length l, from these strings by combining the prefix of string a and suffix of string b.
Examples :

```Input : string a = remuneration
string b = acquiesce
length of pre/suffix(l) = 5
Output :remuniesce

Approach :
1. Get first l letters from string a, and last l letters from string b.
2. Combine both results, and this will be resultant string.
