    Default ArrayList Question

    How would I go through an ArrayList: {7, 5, 4, 4, 3, 3, 2, 2} and try to get all the possible sums of 8 before printing the values left over that won't/can't add up to 8?

    For instance,
    Java Code:
    5 + 3 = 8
    2 + 4 + 2 = 8
    3 + 4 = 7 //Doesn't add up to 8, and the others have already been used
    7 = 7 //No index value plus this index value adds up to 8
    All indices must be used and only once. There will be more than one possibility but I want to have the fewest number of lines output.

    I posted a full solution in this thread; your problem is a variation on the same theme.

    kind regards,
