# XOR of two Binary Strings

Given two binary strings A and B of equal lengths, the task is to print a string which is the XOR of Binary Strings A and B.

Examples:

Input: A = “0001”, B = “0010”
Output: 0011

Input: A = “1010”, B = “0101”
Output: 1111

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

Approach: The idea is to iterate over both the string character by character and if the character mismatched then add “1” as the character in the answer string otherwise add “0” to the answer string to generate the XOR string. Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ Implementation to find the  ` `// XOR of the two Binary Strings ` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// Function to find the  ` `// XOR of the two Binary Strings ` `string xoring(string a, string b, ``int` `n){ ` `string ans = ``""``; ` `     `  `    ``// Loop to iterate over the ` `    ``// Binary Strings ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < n; i++) ` `    ``{ ` `        ``// If the Character matches ` `        ``if` `(a[i] == b[i]) ` `            ``ans += ``"0"``; ` `        ``else` `            ``ans += ``"1"``; ` `    ``} ` `    ``return` `ans; ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver Code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``string a = ``"1010"``; ` `    ``string b = ``"1101"``; ` `    ``int` `n = a.length(); ` `    ``string c = xoring(a, b, n); ` `    ``cout << c << endl; ` `} ` ` `  `// This code is contributed by Surendra_Gangwar `
