Not sure how to write it in C++ but the logic should go like this, using coordinates: if R, check if x or y of attacker and K match; else if B, check if abs(x of B - x of K) == abs(y of B - y of K); else if Q, do all the checks above; else if Knight, check if (abs(x of Knight - x of K)==2 And abs(y of Knight - y of K)==1) Or (abs(x of Knight - x of K)==1 And abs(y of Knight - y of K)==2). Btw abs(x) returns the absolute i.e. positive value of x. Hope this helps đź‘Ť
