# Find maximum value of Sum( i*arr[i]) with only rotations on given array allowed

Given an array, only rotation operation is allowed on array. We can rotate the array as many times as we want. Return the maximum possbile of summation of i*arr[i].

Example:

Input: arr[] = {1, 20, 2, 10}
Output: 72
We can 72 by rotating array twice.
{2, 10, 1, 20}
20*3 + 1*2 + 10*1 + 2*0 = 72

Input: arr[] = {10, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9};
Output: 330
We can 330 by rotating array 9 times.
{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10};
0*1 + 1*2 + 2*3 ... 9*10 = 330

We strongly recommend you to minimize your browser and try this yourself first.

A Simple Solution is to find all rotations one by one, check sum of every rotation and return the maximum sum. Time complexity of this solution is O(n2).

We can solve this problem in O(n) time using an Efficient Solution.
Let Rj be value of i*arr[i] with j rotations. The idea is to calculate next rotation value from previous rotation, i.e., calculate Rj from Rj-1. We can calculate initial value of result as R0, then keep calculating next rotation values.

How to efficiently calculate Rj from Rj-1?
This can be done in O(1) time. Below are details.

Let us calculate initial value of i*arr[i] with no rotation
R0 = 0*arr[0] + 1*arr[1] +...+ (n-1)*arr[n-1]

After 1 rotation arr[n-1], becomes first element of array,
arr[0] becomes second element, arr[1] becomes third element
and so on.
R1 = 0*arr[n-1] + 1*arr[0] +...+ (n-1)*arr[n-2]

R1 - R0 = arr[0] + arr[1] + ... + arr[n-2] - (n-1)*arr[n-1]

After 2 rotations arr[n-2], becomes first element of array,
arr[n-1] becomes second element, arr[0] becomes third element
and so on.
R2 = 0*arr[n-2] + 1*arr[n-1] +...+ (n?1)*arr[n-3]

R2 - R1 = arr[0] + arr[1] + ... + arr[n-3] - (n-1)*arr[n-2] + arr[n-1]

If we take a closer look at above values, we can observe
below pattern

Rj - Rj-1 = arrSum - n * arr[n-j]

Where arrSum is sum of all array elements, i.e.,

arrSum = ∑ arr[i]
i<=0<=n-1

Below is complete algorithm:

1) Compute sum of all array elements. Let this sum be 'arrSum'.

2) Compute R0 by doing i*arr[i] for given array.
Let this value be currVal.

3) Initialize result: maxVal = currVal // maxVal is result.

// This loop computes Rj from  Rj-1
4) Do following for j = 1 to n-1
......a) currVal = currVal + arrSum-n*arr[n-j];
......b) If (currVal > maxVal)
maxVal = currVal

5) Return maxVal

Below are C++ and Python implementations of above idea.

## C++

// C++ program to find max value of i*arr[i]
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

// Returns max possible value of i*arr[i]
int maxSum(int arr[], int n)
{
// Find array sum and i*arr[i] with no rotation
int arrSum = 0;  // Stores sum of arr[i]
int currVal = 0;  // Stores sum of i*arr[i]
for (int i=0; i<n; i++)
{
arrSum = arrSum + arr[i];
currVal = currVal+(i*arr[i]);
}

// Initialize result as 0 rotation sum
int maxVal = currVal;

// Try all rotations one by one and find
// the maximum rotation sum.
for (int j=1; j<n; j++)
{
currVal = currVal + arrSum-n*arr[n-j];
if (currVal > maxVal)
maxVal = currVal;
}

// Return result
return maxVal;
}

// Driver program
int main(void)
{
int arr[] = {10, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9};
int n = sizeof(arr)/sizeof(arr[0]);
cout << "\nMax sum is " << maxSum(arr, n);
return 0;
}

## Java

// Java program to find max value of i*arr[i]

import java.util.Arrays;

class Test
{
static int arr[] = new int[]{10, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9};

// Returns max possible value of i*arr[i]
static int maxSum()
{
// Find array sum and i*arr[i] with no rotation
int arrSum = 0;  // Stores sum of arr[i]
int currVal = 0;  // Stores sum of i*arr[i]
for (int i=0; i<arr.length; i++)
{
arrSum = arrSum + arr[i];
currVal = currVal+(i*arr[i]);
}

// Initialize result as 0 rotation sum
int maxVal = currVal;

// Try all rotations one by one and find
// the maximum rotation sum.
for (int j=1; j<arr.length; j++)
{
currVal = currVal + arrSum-arr.length*arr[arr.length-j];
if (currVal > maxVal)
maxVal = currVal;
}

// Return result
return maxVal;
}

// Driver method to test the above function
public static void main(String[] args)
{
System.out.println("Max sum is " + maxSum());
}
}

## Python

'''Python program to find maximum value of Sum(i*arr[i])'''

# returns max possible value of Sum(i*arr[i])
def maxSum(arr):

# stores sum of arr[i]
arrSum = 0

# stores sum of i*arr[i]
currVal = 0

n = len(arr)

for i in range(0, n):
arrSum = arrSum + arr[i]
currVal = currVal + (i*arr[i])

# initialize result
maxVal = currVal

# try all rotations one by one and find the maximum
# rotation sum
for j in range(1, n):
currVal = currVal + arrSum-n*arr[n-j]
if currVal > maxVal:
maxVal = currVal

# return result
return maxVal

# test maxsum(arr) function
arr = [10, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]
print "Max sum is: ", maxSum(arr)

Output:
Max sum is 330

Time Complexity: O(n)
Auxiliary Space: O(1)
