Erm, yes, lots of ways, there are probably further constraints on the
problem, such as the size of the integers, how the lists are supposed
to be distributed, etc. Can you be more specific? Is this for an
application? If it's a homework problem, that's fine, but it's better
in that case for respondents to suggest hints rather than full solutions.
