Given an unsorted array arr[] of both negative and positive integer. The task is place all negative element at the end of array without changing the order of positive element and negative element. 

Examples: 

Input : arr[] = {1, -1, 3, 2, -7, -5, 11, 6 }
Output : 1  3  2  11  6  -1  -7  -5 

Input : arr[] = {-5, 7, -3, -4, 9, 10, -1, 11}
Output : 7  9  10  11  -5  -3  -4  -1  

We have discussed different approaches to this problem in below post.
Rearrange positive and negative numbers with constant extra space

The problem becomes easier if we are allowed to use extra space. Idea is create an empty array (temp[]). First we store all positive element of given array and then we store all negative element of array in Temp[]. Finally we copy temp[] to original array.

Implementation:

C++




// C++ program to Move All -ve Element At End
// Without changing order Of Array Element
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Moves all -ve element to end of array in
// same order.
void segregateElements(int arr[], int n)
{
    // Create an empty array to store result
    int temp[n];
 
    // Traversal array and store +ve element in
    // temp array
    int j = 0; // index of temp
    for (int i = 0; i < n ; i++)
        if (arr[i] >= 0 )
            temp[j++] = arr[i];
 
    // If array contains all positive or all negative.
    if (j == n || j == 0)
        return;
 
    // Store -ve element in temp array
    for (int i = 0 ; i < n ; i++)
        if (arr[i] < 0)
            temp[j++] = arr[i];
 
    // Copy contents of temp[] to arr[]
    memcpy(arr, temp, sizeof(temp));
}
 
// Driver program
int main()
{
    int arr[] = {1 ,-1 ,-3 , -2, 7, 5, 11, 6 };
    int n = sizeof(arr)/sizeof(arr[0]);
 
    segregateElements(arr, n);
 
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
    cout << arr[i] << " ";
 
    return 0;
}


Java




// Java program to Move All -ve Element At End
// Without changing order Of Array Element
import java.util.Arrays;
 
class GFG {
     
    // Moves all -ve element to end of array in
    // same order.
    static void segregateElements(int arr[], int n)
    {
         
        // Create an empty array to store result
        int temp[] = new int[n];
 
        // Traversal array and store +ve element in
        // temp array
        int j = 0; // index of temp
         
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
            if (arr[i] >= 0)
                temp[j++] = arr[i];
 
        // If array contains all positive or all
        // negative.
        if (j == n || j == 0)
            return;
 
        // Store -ve element in temp array
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
            if (arr[i] < 0)
                temp[j++] = arr[i];
 
        // Copy contents of temp[] to arr[]
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
            arr[i] = temp[i];
    }
     
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String arg[])
    {
        int arr[] = { 1, -1, -3, -2, 7, 5, 11, 6 };
        int n = arr.length;
 
        segregateElements(arr, n);
 
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
            System.out.print(arr[i] + " ");
    }
}
