Java Array Exercises: Find common elements from three sorted arrays

Sample Solution:

Java Code:

import java.util.*;
public class Exercise25 {
public static void main(String[] args) {
	ArrayList<Integer> common = new ArrayList<Integer>();
   int array1[] = {2, 4, 8};
   int array2[] = {2, 3, 4, 8, 10, 16};
   int array3[] = {4, 8, 14, 40};
	int x = 0, y = 0, z = 0;
	while (x < array1.length && y < array2.length && z < array3.length){
		if (array1[x] == array2[y] && array2[y] == array3[z]){
			common.add(array1[x]);
			x++;
			y++;
			z++;
		}
		else if (array1[x] < array2[y])
			x++;
		else if (array2[y] < array3[z])
			y++;
		else
			z++;
	}
	System.out.println("Common elements from three sorted (in non-decreasing order ) arrays: ");
System.out.println(common);
}
}

Sample Data: array1 = 2, 4, 8
array2 = 2, 3, 4, 8, 10, 16
array3 = 4, 8, 14, 40

Sample Output:

                                                                              
Common elements from three sorted (in non-decreasing order ) arrays:   
[4, 8]
