We are given an array of digits (values lie in range from 0 to 9). The task is to count all the sub sequences possible in array such that in each subsequence every digit is greater than its previous digits in the subsequence.

Examples:

Input : arr[] = {1, 2, 3, 4} Output: 15 There are total increasing subsequences {1}, {2}, {3}, {4}, {1,2}, {1,3}, {1,4}, {2,3}, {2,4}, {3,4}, {1,2,3}, {1,2,4}, {1,3,4}, {2,3,4}, {1,2,3,4} Input : arr[] = {4, 3, 6, 5} Output: 8 Sub-sequences are {4}, {3}, {6}, {5}, {4,6}, {4,5}, {3,6}, {3,5} Input : arr[] = {3, 2, 4, 5, 4} Output : 14 Sub-sequences are {3}, {2}, {4}, {3,4}, {2,4}, {5}, {3,5}, {2,5}, {4,5}, {3,2,5} {3,4,5}, {4}, {3,4}, {2,4}

**Method 1 (Similar to LIS)**

A Simple Solution is to use Dynamic Programming Solution of Longest Increasing Subsequence (LIS) problem. Like LIS problem, we first compute count of increasing subsequences ending at every index. Finally, we return sum of all values (In LCS problem, we return max of all values).

// We count all increasing subsequences ending at every // index i subCount(i) = Count of increasing subsequences ending at arr[i]. // Like LCS, this value can be recursively computed subCount(i) = 1 + ∑ subCount(j) where j is index of all elements such that arr[j] < arr[i] and j < i. 1 is added as every element itself is a subsequence of size 1. // Finally we add all counts to get the result. Result = ∑ subCount(i) where i varies from 0 to n-1.

**Illustration:**

For example, arr[] = {3, 2, 4, 5, 4} // There are no smaller elements on left of arr[0] // and arr[1] subCount(0) = 1 subCount(1) = 1 // Note that arr[0] and arr[1] are smaller than arr[2] subCount(2) = 1 + subCount(0) + subCount(1) = 3 subCount(3) = 1 + subCount(0) + subCount(1) + subCount(2) = 1 + 1 + 1 + 3 = 6 subCount(3) = 1 + subCount(0) + subCount(1) = 1 + 1 + 1 = 3 Result = subCount(0) + subCount(1) + subCount(2) + subCount(3) = 1 + 1 + 3 + 6 + 3 = 14.

Time Complexity : O(n^{2})

Auxiliary Space : O(n)

Refer this for implementation.

**Method 2 (Efficient)**

The above solution doesn't use the fact that we have only 10 possible values in given array. We can use this fact by using an array count[] such that count[d] stores current count digits smaller than d.

For example, arr[] = {3, 2, 4, 5, 4} // We create a count array and initialize it as 0. count[10] = {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0} // Note that here value is used as index to store counts count[3] += 1 = 1 // i = 0, arr[0] = 3 count[2] += 1 = 1 // i = 1, arr[0] = 2 // Let us compute count for arr[2] which is 4 count[4] += 1 + count[3] + count[2] += 1 + 1 + 1 = 3 // Let us compute count for arr[3] which is 5 count[5] += 1 + count[3] + count[2] + count[4] += 1 + 1 + 1 + 3 = 6 // Let us compute count for arr[4] which is 4 count[4] += 1 + count[0] + count[1] += 1 + 1 + 1 += 3 = 3 + 3 = 6 Note that count[] = {0, 0, 1, 1, 6, 6, 0, 0, 0, 0} Result = count[0] + count[1] + ... + count[9] = 1 + 1 + 6 + 6 {count[2] = 1, count[3] = 1 count[4] = 6, count[5] = 6} = 14.

Below is the implementation of above idea.
