# Queen Attack

0.0% Acceptance

Given the position of two queens on a chess board, indicate whether or not they are positioned so that they can attack each other.

In the game of chess, a queen can attack pieces which are on the same row, column, or diagonal.

A chessboard can be represented by an 8 by 8 array.

So if you are told the white queen is at `c5`

(zero-indexed at column 2, row 3) and the black queen at `f2`

(zero-indexed at column 5, row 6), then you know that the set-up is like so:

`a b c d e f g h 8 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 8 7 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 7 6 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 6 5 _ _ W _ _ _ _ _ 5 4 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 4 3 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 3 2 _ _ _ _ _ B _ _ 2 1 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 1 a b c d e f g h`

You are also able to answer whether the queens can attack each other.

In this case, that answer would be yes, they can, because both pieces share a diagonal.
