Count of pairs in an Array with same number of set bits

Given an array arr containing N integers, the task is to count the possible number of pairs of elements with the same number of set bits.

Examples:

Input: N = 8, arr[] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8}
Output: 9
Explanation:
Elements with 1 set bit: 1, 2, 4, 8
Elements with 2 set bits: 3, 5, 6
Elements with 3 set bits: 7
Hence, {1, 2}, {1, 4}, {1, 8}, {2, 4}, {2, 8}, {4, 8}, {3, 5}, {3, 6}, and {5, 6} are the possible such pairs.

Input: N = 12, arr[] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12}
Output: 22

// C++ Program to count

// number of set bits.
  
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
// Function to return the
// count of Pairs
int countPairs(int arr[], int N)
{
    // Get the maximum element
    int maxm = *max_element(arr, arr + N);
  
    int i, k;
    // Array to store count of bits
    // of all elements upto maxm
    int bitscount[maxm + 1] = { 0 };
  
    // Store the set bits
    // for powers of 2
    for (i = 1; i <= maxm; i *= 2)
        bitscount[i] = 1;
    // Compute the set bits for
    // the remaining elements
    for (i = 1; i <= maxm; i++) {
        if (bitscount[i] == 1)
            k = i;
        if (bitscount[i] == 0) {
            bitscount[i]
                = bitscount[k]
                  + bitscount[i - k];
        }
    }
  
    // Store the frequency
    // of respective counts
    // of set bits
    map<int, int> setbits;
    for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) {
        setbits[bitscount[arr[i]]]++;
    }
  
    int ans = 0;
    for (auto it : setbits) {
        ans += it.second
               * (it.second - 1) / 2;
    }
  
    return ans;
}
  
int main()
{
    int N = 12;
    int arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,
                  8, 9, 10, 11, 12 };
  
    cout << countPairs(arr, N);
  
    return 0;
}
