Compare sum of first N-1 elements to Nth element of an array
  • Last Updated : 12 May, 2021

Given an array arr[] of size N, the task is to check whether the sum of first N – 1 element of the array is equal to the last element.
Examples: 
 

Input: arr[] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 10} 
Output: Yes
Input: arr[] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 12} 
Output: No 
 

 

Approach: Find the sum of the first N – 1 elements from the array i.e. arr[0] + arr[1] + … + arr[N – 2] and compare it with arr[N – 1].
Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
 
// Function that returns true if sum of
// first n-1 elements of the array is
// equal to the last element
bool isSumEqual(int ar[], int n)
{
    int sum = 0;
 
    // Find the sum of first n-1
    // elements of the array
    for (int i = 0; i < n - 1; i++)
        sum += ar[i];
 
    // If sum equals to the last element
    if (sum == ar[n - 1])
        return true;
 
    return false;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
 
    if (isSumEqual(arr, n))
        cout << "Yes";
    else
        cout << "No";
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation of the approach
 
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG {
 
    // Function that returns true if sum of
    // first n-1 elements of the array is
    // equal to the last element
    static boolean isSumEqual(int ar[], int n)
    {
        int sum = 0;
 
        // Find the sum of first n-1
        // elements of the array
        for (int i = 0; i < n - 1; i++)
            sum += ar[i];
 
        // If sum equals to the last element
        if (sum == ar[n - 1])
            return true;
 
        return false;
    }
 
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        int arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 };
        int n = arr.length;
 
        if (isSumEqual(arr, n))
            System.out.println("Yes");
        else
            System.out.println("No");
    }
}

    # elements of the array
    for i in range(n - 1):
        sum += ar[i]
 
    # If sum equals to the last element
    if (sum == ar[n - 1]):
        return True
 
    return False
 
# Driver code

    arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 10]
    n = len(arr)
 
    if (isSumEqual(arr, n)):
        print("Yes")
    else:
        print("No")
