# Java: Test if the first or the last elements of two arrays of integers are same

## Java Basic: Exercise-76 with Solution

Write a Java program to test if the first and last element of two integer arrays are the same. The array length must be greater than or equal to 2.

**Sample Solution:**

**Java Code:**

```
public class Main {
public static void main(String[] args) {
// Define two integer arrays (num_array1 and num_array2)
// Example 1: Arrays with different first and last elements
int[] num_array1 = {50, -20, 0, 30, 40, 60, 12};
int[] num_array2 = {45, 20, 10, 20, 30, 50, 11};
// Example 2: Arrays with the same first and last elements
// int[] num_array1 = {50, -20, 0, 30, 40, 60, 50};
// int[] num_array2 = {45, 20, 10, 20, 30, 50, 45};
// Example 3: Arrays with lengths less than 2
// int[] num_array1 = {50};
// int[] num_array2 = {45};
if (num_array1.length >= 2 && num_array2.length >= 2) {
// Check if both arrays have lengths of at least 2 and if their first or last elements are equal
System.out.println(num_array1[0] == num_array2[0] || num_array1[num_array1.length - 1] == num_array2[num_array2.length - 1]);
} else {
System.out.println("Array lengths less than 2.");
}
}
}
```

Sample Output:

false

**Java Code Editor:**

**Previous:** Write a Java program to test if the first and the last element of an array of integers are same.

**Next:** Write a Java program to create a new array of length 2 from two arrays of integers with three elements and the new array will contain the first and last elements from the two arrays.
