String from prefix and suffix of given two strings
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 06 Nov, 2020

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

Input : adulation
        obstreperous
        6
Output :adulatperous

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.
