Count array elements having modular inverse under given prime number P equal to itself
  • Last Updated : 13 Apr, 2021

Given an array arr[] of size N and a prime number P, the task is to count the elements of the array such that modulo multiplicative inverse of the element under modulo P is equal to the element itself.

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {1, 6, 4, 5}, P = 7
Output: 2
Explanation:
Modular multiplicative inverse of arr[0](=1) under modulo P(= 7) is arr[0](= 1) itself.
Modular multiplicative inverse of arr1](= 6) under modulo P(= 7) is arr[1](= 6) itself.
Therefore, the required output is 2.

Input: arr[] = {1, 3, 8, 12, 12}, P = 13
Output: 3

 

Naive Approach: The simplest approach is to solve this problem is to traverse the array and print the count of array elements such that that modulo multiplicative inverse of the element under modulo P is equal to the element itself.



Time Complexity: O(N * log P)
Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Efficient Approach: To optimize the above approach, the idea is based on the following observations:

If X and Y are two numbers such that (X × Y) % P = 1, then Y is modulo inverse of X.
Therefore, If Y is X itself, then (X × X) % P must be 1.

Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

  • Initialize a variable, say cntElem to store the count of elements that satisfy the given condition.
  • Traverse the given array and check if (arr[i] * arr[i]) % P equal to 1 or not. If found to be true then increment the count of cntElem by 1.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ program to implement
// the above approach
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to get the count
// of elements that satisfy
// the given condition.
int equvInverse(int arr[],
                int N, int P)
{
    // Stores count of elements
    // that satisfy the condition
    int cntElem = 0;
 
    // Traverse the given array.
    for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) {
 
        // If square of current
        // element is equal to 1
        if ((arr[i] * arr[i]) % P
            == 1) {
            cntElem++;
        }
    }
    return cntElem;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 1, 6, 4, 5 };
    int N = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
    int P = 7;
    cout << equvInverse(arr, N, P);
}

Java




// Java program to implement
// the above approach
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG{
 
// Function to get the count
// of elements that satisfy
// the given condition.
static int equvInverse(int[] arr,
                       int N, int P)
{
     
    // Stores count of elements
    // that satisfy the condition
    int cntElem = 0;
 
    // Traverse the given array.
    for(int i = 0; i < N; i++)
    {
         
        // If square of current
        // element is equal to 1
        if ((arr[i] * arr[i]) % P == 1)
        {
            cntElem++;
        }
    }
    return cntElem;
}
 
// Driver Code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    int[] arr = { 1, 6, 4, 5 };
    int N = arr.length;
    int P = 7;
     
    System.out.println(equvInverse(arr, N, P));
}
