#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main()
    int *pointer = nullptr;
    cout << "how many items u are gonna enter"<<endl;
    int input;
    cin >> input;

    pointer = new int[input];

    int temp;

    for(int counter =0; counter < input ; counter++){
        cout << "enter the item "<<counter+1<<endl;
        cin >> temp;
        *(pointer+counter) =  temp;

    cout << "the items you have entered are"<<endl;
        for(int counter =0; counter < input ; counter++){
        cout << counter+1 << "  item is  "<<*(pointer+counter)<<endl;


    delete []pointer;

    return 0;
