## Java Array: Exercise-43 with Solution

Write a Java program to find all combination of four elements of a given array whose sum is equal to a given value.

Pictorial Presentation: Sample Solution:

Java Code:

``````import java.util.*;
import java.lang.*;
public class Main
{
public static void main (String[] args)
{
int nums[] = {10, 20, 30, 40, 1, 2};
int n = nums.length;
// given value
int s = 53;
System.out.println("Given value: "+s);
System.out.print("Combination of four elements:");
// Find other three elements after fixing first element
for (int i = 0; i < n - 3; i++)
{
// Find other two elements after fixing second element
for (int j = i + 1; j < n - 2; j++)
{
// Find the fourth element after fixing third element
for (int k = j + 1; k < n - 1; k++)
{
// find the fourth
for (int l = k + 1; l < n; l++)
{
if (nums[i] + nums[j] + nums[k] + nums[l] == s)
System.out.print("\n"+nums[i]+" "+nums[j]+" "+nums[k]
+" "+nums[l]);
}
}
}
}
}
}
```
```

Sample Output:

```
Given value: 53
Combination of four elements:
10 40 1 2
20 30 1 2
```

## Java: Tips of the Day

Array vs ArrayLists:

The main difference between these two is that an Array is of fixed size so once you have created an Array you cannot change it but the ArrayList is not of fixed size. You can create instances of ArrayLists without specifying its size. So if you create such instances of an ArrayList without specifying its size Java will create an instance of an ArrayList of default size.

Once an ArrayList is full it re-sizes itself. In fact, an ArrayList is internally supported by an array. So when an ArrayList is resized it will slow down its performance a bit as the contents of the old Array must be copied to a new Array.

At the same time, it's compulsory to specify the size of an Array directly or indirectly while creating it. And also Arrays can store both primitives and objects while ArrayLists only can store objects.
