C# Sharp Exercises: LINQ : Generate a Cartesian Product of three sets

C# Sharp LINQ : Exercise-24 with Solution

Write a program in C# Sharp to generate a Cartesian Product of three sets.

Sample Solution:-

C# Sharp Code:

using System;
using System.Linq;
using System.Collections.Generic;
 
class  LinqExercise24
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            char[] charset1 = { 'X', 'Y', 'Z' };
            int[] numset1 = { 1, 2, 3 };
            string[] colorset1 = { "Green", "Orange" };
	
            Console.Write("\nLINQ : Generate a Cartesian Product of three sets : "); 
            Console.Write("\n----------------------------------------------------\n");		

            var cartesianProduct = from letter in charset1
                                   from number in numset1
                                   from colour in colorset1
                                   select new { letter, number, colour };

			Console.Write("The Cartesian Product are : \n");
            foreach (var ProductList in cartesianProduct)
                {
                Console.WriteLine(ProductList);
                }
       Console.ReadLine();
        }    
}

OR

using System;
using System.Linq;
using System.Collections.Generic;
 
class  LinqExercise24
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
        {

            char[] set1 = { 'X', 'Y', 'Z' };
            int[] set2 = { 1, 2, 3 };
            string[] set3 = { "Green", "Pink" };
	
            Console.Write("\nLINQ : Generate a Cartesian Product of three sets: "); 
            Console.Write("\n---------------------------------------------------\n");		

            var set12CartesianProduct = set1.SelectMany(
                letterList => set2.Select(numList => 
                new { letterList, numList }));

            var cartesianProduct = set12CartesianProduct.SelectMany(
                (set1and2) => set3.Select(colorList =>
                new { set1and2.letterList, set1and2.numList, colorList }));

			Console.Write("The Cartesian Product are : \n");
            foreach (var ProductList in cartesianProduct)
                {
                Console.WriteLine(ProductList);
                }
            Console.ReadLine();
        }    
}
