Array

Rotation of the above array by 2 will make array
 



ArrayRotation1

METHOD 1 (Using temp array) 
 

Input arr[] = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7], d = 2, n =7
1) Store d elements in a temp array
   temp[] = [1, 2]
2) Shift rest of the arr[]
   arr[] = [3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 6, 7]
3) Store back the d elements
   arr[] = [3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1, 2]

C++




// C++ program to rotate an array by 
// d elements
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
int main(){
    int a[]={1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9};
    int n=9;
    int d=2;
    int temp[d];
    for(int i=0;i<d;i++){
        temp[i]=a[i];
    }
    for(int i=0,j=d;i<n-1;i++,j++){
        a[i]=a[j];
    }
    int c[n+d];
    int i=0;
    int j=0;
    int k=0;
    for(;i<n-2;i++){
        c[k++]=a[i];
    }
    for(;j<d;j++){
        c[k++]=temp[j];
}
      
    for(int i=0;i<n;i++){
        cout<<c[i]<<" ";
    }
}
Output:
345678912

Time complexity : O(n) 
Auxiliary Space : O(d)

METHOD 2 (Rotate one by one) 
 

leftRotate(arr[], d, n)
start
  For i = 0 to i < d
    Left rotate all elements of arr[] by one
end

To rotate by one, store arr[0] in a temporary variable temp, move arr[1] to arr[0], arr[2] to arr[1] …and finally temp to arr[n-1]
Let us take the same example arr[] = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7], d = 2 
Rotate arr[] by one 2 times 
We get [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1] after first rotation and [ 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1, 2] after second rotation. 

C++




// C++ program to rotate an array by 
// d elements
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
/*Function to left Rotate arr[] of 
  size n by 1*/
void leftRotatebyOne(int arr[], int n)
{
   int temp = arr[0];
   int i;
   for(i = 0; i < n-1; i++)
   arr[i] = arr[i+1];
     
   arr[i] = temp;
}
  
/*Function to left rotate arr[] of size n by d*/
void leftRotate(int arr[], int d, int n)
{
    for (int i = 0; i < d; i++)
    leftRotatebyOne(arr, n);
}
  
/* utility function to print an array */
void printArray(int arr[], int size)
{
    for(int i = 0; i < size; i++)
    cout << arr[i] << " ";
}
  
/* Driver program to test above functions */
int main()
{
   int arr[] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7};
   int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
     
   // Function calling
   leftRotate(arr, 2, n);
   printArray(arr, n);
  
   return 0;
}

C




/*Function to left Rotate arr[] of size n by 1*/
void leftRotatebyOne(int arr[], int n);
  
/*Function to left rotate arr[] of size n by d*/
void leftRotate(int arr[], int d, int n)
{
  int i;
  for (i = 0; i < d; i++)
    leftRotatebyOne(arr, n);
}
  
void leftRotatebyOne(int arr[], int n)
{
  int i, temp;
  temp = arr[0];
  for (i = 0; i < n-1; i++)
     arr[i] = arr[i+1];
  arr[i] = temp;
}
  
/* utility function to print an array */
void printArray(int arr[], int size)
{
  int i;
  for(i = 0; i < size; i++)
    printf("%d ", arr[i]);
}
  
/* Driver program to test above functions */
int main()
{
   int arr[] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7};
   leftRotate(arr, 2, 7);
   printArray(arr, 7);
   getchar();
   return 0;
}

C#




// C# program for array rotation
using System;
  
class GFG
{
    /* Function to left rotate arr[]
    of size n by d*/
    static void leftRotate(int []arr, int d,
                                     int n) 
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < d; i++)
            leftRotatebyOne(arr, n);
    }
  
    static void leftRotatebyOne(int []arr, int n) 
    {
        int i, temp = arr[0];
        for (i = 0; i < n - 1; i++)
            arr[i] = arr[i + 1];
              
        arr[i] = temp;
    }
  
    /* utility function to print an array */
    static void printArray(int []arr, int size) 
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < size; i++)
            Console.Write(arr[i] + " ");
    }
  
    // Driver code
    public static void Main() 
    {
        int []arr = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7};
        leftRotate(arr, 2, 7);
        printArray(arr, 7);
    }
}

Output:
3 4 5 6 7 1 2

Output : 



3 4 5 6 7 1 2 

Time complexity : O(n * d) 
Auxiliary Space : O(1) 

METHOD 3 (A Juggling Algorithm) 
This is an extension of method 2. Instead of moving one by one, divide the array in different sets 
where number of sets is equal to GCD of n and d and move the elements within sets. 
If GCD is 1 as is for the above example array (n = 7 and d =2), then elements will be moved within one set only, we just start with temp = arr[0] and keep moving arr[I+d] to arr[I] and finally store temp at the right place.
Here is an example for n =12 and d = 3. GCD is 3 and Let arr[] be {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12}

a) Elements are first moved in first set –
(See below diagram for this movement)

arr[] after this step –> {4 2 3 7 5 6 10 8 9 1 11 12}

b) Then in second set.
arr[] after this step –> {4 5 3 7 8 6 10 11 9 1 2 12}

c) Finally in third set.
arr[] after this step –> {4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 1 2 3}

/*Function to get gcd of a and b*/
int gcd(int a,int b)

    return gcd(b, a%b);
