Count of subsequences consisting of the same element

Given an array A[] consisting of N integers, the task is to find the total number of subsequence which contain only one distinct number repeated throughout the subsequence.

Examples:  

Input: A[] = {1, 2, 1, 5, 2} 
Output:
Explanation: 
Subsequences {1}, {2}, {1}, {5}, {2}, {1, 1} and {2, 2} satisfy the required conditions.

Input: A[] = {5, 4, 4, 5, 10, 4} 
Output: 11 
Explanation: 
Subsequences {5}, {4}, {4}, {5}, {10}, {4}, {5, 5}, {4, 4}, {4, 4}, {4, 4} and {4, 4, 4} satisfy the required conditions. 

Approach: 
Follow the steps below to solve the problem: 



  • Iterate over the array and calculate the frequency of each element in a HashMap
  • Traverse the HashMap. For each element, calculate the number of desired subsequences possible by the equation: 

 Number of subsequences possible by arr[i] = 2freq[arr[i]] – 1 

  • Calculate the total possible subsequences from the given array. 
     

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

        // Calculate number of subsequences

            = result + pow(2, it.second) - 1;

    int N = sizeof(A) / sizeof(A[0]);
 
    CountSubSequence(A, N);
 
    return 0;
