# Find the Number of Maximum Product Quadruples in C++

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have one integer array with n elements. We have to find the maximum product of a quadruple in the array. So if the array is like [3, 5, 20, 6, 10], then final product is 6000, and elements in quadruple is 10, 5, 6, 20

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

• Sort the array in ascending order
• Suppose x be the product of last four elements, y be the product of first four elements, and z be the product of first two and second two elements
• Return the max of x, y and z.

## Example

#include<iostream>
#include<algorithm>
using namespace std;
int maxQuadProduct(int arr[], int n) {
if (n < 4)
return -1;
sort(arr, arr + n);
int last_four = arr[n - 1] * arr[n - 2] * arr[n - 3] * arr[n - 4];
int first_four = arr * arr * arr * arr;
int two_first_last = arr * arr * arr[n - 1] * arr[n - 2];
return max(last_four, max(first_four, two_first_last));
}
int main() {
int arr[] = { -10, -3, 5, 6, -20 };
int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr);
}
Maximum product is 6000
