# Basics of Array (+ Implementation)

Array is a simple Data Structure. Go through the basics of Array and how to implement it in C and C++ Programming Language. This is same for other programming Languages as well. We will attempt Practice Problems following this.

- Array
- Row major and Column major order
- Get length of array in C and C++
- Initialize array in C
- Delete an array in C
- 2D array in C
`(`

**Important**) - 3D array in C
- Intersection of two arrays
- Time Complexity Analysis of Array

# Types of Array

Many do not realize that there are different types of Array. Each type is useful for different problems. Some array techniques like Prefix Sum Array will help you solve key Algorithmic Problems.

Go through the different types of Array:

- Dynamic Array
