C++ Exercises: Check a given array of integers and return true if the given array contains two 5's next to each other, or two 5 separated by one element

C++ Basic Algorithm: Exercise-109 with Solution

Write a C++ program to check a given array of integers and return true if the given array contains two 5's next to each other, or two 5 separated by one element.

Sample Solution:

C++ Code :

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

static bool test(int nums[], int arr_length)
        {
        int len = arr_length;

            for (int i = 0; i < len - 1; i++)
            {
                if (nums[i] ==5 && nums[i + 1] == 5) return true;
                if (i + 2 < len && nums[i] == 5 && nums[i + 2] == 5) return true;
            }
            return false;
          }   
          
int main() 
 {  
  int nums1[] = {5, 5, 1, 5, 5};
  int arr_length = sizeof(nums1) / sizeof(nums1[0]);
  cout << test(nums1, arr_length) << endl; 
  int nums2[] = {1, 2, 3, 4};
  arr_length = sizeof(nums2) / sizeof(nums2[0]);
  cout << test(nums2, arr_length) << endl;
  int nums3[] = {3, 3, 5, 5, 5, 5};
  arr_length = sizeof(nums3) / sizeof(nums3[0]);
  cout << test(nums3, arr_length) << endl;
  int nums4[] = {1, 5, 5, 7, 8, 10};
  arr_length = sizeof(nums4) / sizeof(nums4[0]);
  cout << test(nums4, arr_length) << endl;
  return 0;    
}

Sample Output:

1
0
1
1

Previous: Write a C++ program to check if an array of integers contains a 3 next to a 3 or a 5 next to a 5 or both.
Next: Write a C++ program to check a given array of integers and return true if there is a 3 with a 5 somewhere later in the given array.
