Change K elements so that (a1^2 + a2^2 + …+ aN^2 ) <= (a1 + a2 +…+ aN) becomes true

  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 13 Apr, 2021

Given an array Arr of size N. The task is to tell whether it is possible to change at most K elements of this sequence to arbitrary positive integers in such a way that the below condition holds.
 

Examples: 

Input:N = 2, Arr[] = {1, 2}, K = 2
Output: Possible
(As A[2] can be change to 1)

Input: N = 2, Arr[] = {5, 6}, K = 1
Output: Not Possible
(As we can only change 1 element to any arbitrary number
and after changing it doesn't satisfy above condition) 

Approach: When all the elements of the array becomes equal to 1 then only the given equation can be satisfied, else not. 

  1. Traverse the array and count the number of 1.
  2. If K >= (size of array i.e N – count) then return true, Else return false.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 



C++




// C++ implementation of above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function that will tell
// whether it is possible or Not
int Series(int Arr[], int N, int K)
{
    int count = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < N; i++)
        if (Arr[i] == 1)
            count++;
 
    if (K >= (N - count))
        return 1;
    else
        return 0;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int Arr[] = { 5, 1, 2 };
    int N = sizeof(Arr) / sizeof(Arr[0]);
    int K = 2;
 
    // Calling function.
    int result = Series(Arr, N, K);
 
    if (result == 1)
        cout << "Possible";
    else
        cout << "Not Possible";
    return 0;
}

Java




//Java  implementation of above approach
 
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG {
     
// Function that will tell
// whether it is possible or Not
static int Series(int Arr[], int N, int K)
{
    int count = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < N; i++)
        if (Arr[i] == 1)
            count++;
 
    if (K >= (N - count))
        return 1;
    else
        return 0;
}
 
// Driver code
    public static void main (String[] args) {
    int Arr[] = { 5, 1, 2 };
    int N = Arr.length;
    int K = 2;
    // Calling function.
    int result = Series(Arr, N, K);
    if (result == 1)
            System.out.println ("Possible");
    else
            System.out.println( "Not Possible");
         
    }
