# how to compare values in vector to an other vector

Hey all.

Please help. i been at it all night and i cant figure it out. Its been 2 years since i last programmed in c++.

my program has 1 array with 30, 3-1 digit numbers i .e 346 , 345 ,377 etc

i will have 13 vectors i will call vector First_tier(345,358, etc)
Second Tier etc()

i want the program to find any of the series of numbers that is in the array to find it an any of the vectors. and i want it to tell me what vector it was found it.

also the order of the series shoudlnt matter for example 123 is the same as 321 or 213.

this is what i got so far. i commented most of the code out.[code]#include
#include
#include

using namespace std;

bool myfunction (int i,int j) { return (i firsts_tier(409 , 508 , 509, 607, 608 ,707 , 139 , 148 , 149 , 157 , 158 ,166 , 167 ,229 , 238 , 239 ,247 , 248 ,256 ,257 ,266 ,337 ,338 ,346 ,347 , 355 , 356 , 445 , 446 ,455);
