Given an array of integers, and a number ‘sum’, find the number of pairs of integers in the array whose sum is equal to ‘sum’.

Examples: Input : arr[] = {1, 5, 7, -1}, sum = 6 Output : 2 Pairs with sum 6 are (1, 5) and (7, -1) Input : arr[] = {1, 5, 7, -1, 5}, sum = 6 Output : 3 Pairs with sum 6 are (1, 5), (7, -1) & (1, 5) Input : arr[] = {1, 1, 1, 1}, sum = 2 Output : 6 There are 3! pairs with sum 2. Input : arr[] = {10, 12, 10, 15, -1, 7, 6, 5, 4, 2, 1, 1, 1}, sum = 11 Output : 9

Expected time complexity O(n)

A **simple solution** is be traverse each element and check if there’s another number in the array which can be added to it to give sum.

## C++

// C++ implementation of simple method to find count of // pairs with given sum. #include <bits/stdc++.h> using namespace std; // Returns number of pairs in arr[0..n-1] with sum equal // to 'sum' int getPairsCount(int arr[], int n, int sum) { int count = 0; // Initialize result // Consider all possible pairs and check their sums for (int i=0; i<n; i++) for (int j=i+1; j<n; j++) if (arr[i]+arr[j] == sum) count++; return count; } // Driver function to test the above function int main() { int arr[] = {1, 5, 7, -1, 5} ; int n = sizeof(arr)/sizeof(arr[0]); int sum = 6; cout << "Count of pairs is " << getPairsCount(arr, n, sum); return 0; }

## Java

// Java implementation of simple method to find count of // pairs with given sum. public class find { public static void main(String args[]) { int[] arr = { 1, 5, 7, -1, 5 }; int sum = 6; getPairsCount(arr, sum); } // Prints number of pairs in arr[0..n-1] with sum equal // to 'sum' public static void getPairsCount(int[] arr, int sum) { int count = 0;// Initialize result // Consider all possible pairs and check their sums for (int i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) for (int j = i + 1; j < arr.length; j++) if ((arr[i] + arr[j]) == sum) count++; System.out.printf("Count of pairs is %d",count); } } // This program is contributed by Jyotsna

## Python3

# Python3 implementation of simple method # to find count of pairs with given sum. # Returns number of pairs in arr[0..n-1] # with sum equal to 'sum' def getPairsCount(arr, n, sum): count = 0 # Initialize result # Consider all possible pairs # and check their sums for i in range(0, n): for j in range(i + 1, n): if arr[i] + arr[j] == sum: count += 1 return count # Driver function arr = [1, 5, 7, -1, 5] n = len(arr) sum = 6 print("Count of pairs is", getPairsCount(arr, n, sum)) # This code is contributed by Smitha Dinesh Semwal

## PHP

<?php // PHP implementation of simple // method to find count of // pairs with given sum. // Returns number of pairs in // arr[0..n-1] with sum equal // to 'sum' function getPairsCount($arr, $n, $sum) { // Initialize result $count = 0; // Consider all possible pairs // and check their sums for ($i = 0; $i < $n; $i++) for ($j = $i + 1; $j < $n; $j++) if ($arr[$i] + $arr[$j] == $sum) $count++; return $count; } // Driver Code $arr = array(1, 5, 7, -1, 5) ; $n = sizeof($arr); $sum = 6; echo "Count of pairs is " , getPairsCount($arr, $n, $sum); // This code is contributed by nitin mittal. ?>

Output :

Count of pairs is 3

Time Complexity : O(n^{2})

Auxiliary Space : O(1)

**A better solution is possible in O(n) time**.

Below is the Algorithm.

- Create a map to store frequency of each number in the array. (Single traversal is required)
- In the next traversal, for every element check if it can be combined with any other element (other than itself!) to give the desired sum. Increment the counter accordingly.
- After completion of second traversal, we’d have twice the required value stored in counter because every pair is counted two times. Hence divide count by 2 and return.

Below is the implementation of above idea :

## C++

// C++ implementation of simple method to find count of // pairs with given sum. #include <bits/stdc++.h> using namespace std; // Returns number of pairs in arr[0..n-1] with sum equal // to 'sum' int getPairsCount(int arr[], int n, int sum) { unordered_map<int, int> m; // Store counts of all elements in map m for (int i=0; i<n; i++) m[arr[i]]++; int twice_count = 0; // iterate through each element and increment the // count (Notice that every pair is counted twice) for (int i=0; i<n; i++) { twice_count += m[sum-arr[i]]; // if (arr[i], arr[i]) pair satisfies the condition, // then we need to ensure that the count is // decreased by one such that the (arr[i], arr[i]) // pair is not considered if (sum-arr[i] == arr[i]) twice_count--; } // return the half of twice_count return twice_count/2; } // Driver function to test the above function int main() { int arr[] = {1, 5, 7, -1, 5} ; int n = sizeof(arr)/sizeof(arr[0]); int sum = 6; cout << "Count of pairs is " << getPairsCount(arr, n, sum); return 0; }

## Java

/* Java implementation of simple method to find count of pairs with given sum*/ import java.util.HashMap; class Test { static int arr[] = new int[]{1, 5, 7, -1, 5} ; // Returns number of pairs in arr[0..n-1] with sum equal // to 'sum' static int getPairsCount(int n, int sum) { HashMap<Integer, Integer> hm = new HashMap<>(); // Store counts of all elements in map hm for (int i=0; i<n; i++){ // initializing value to 0, if key not found if(!hm.containsKey(arr[i])) hm.put(arr[i],0); hm.put(arr[i], hm.get(arr[i])+1); } int twice_count = 0; // iterate through each element and increment the // count (Notice that every pair is counted twice) for (int i=0; i<n; i++) { if(hm.get(sum-arr[i]) != null) twice_count += hm.get(sum-arr[i]); // if (arr[i], arr[i]) pair satisfies the condition, // then we need to ensure that the count is // decreased by one such that the (arr[i], arr[i]) // pair is not considered if (sum-arr[i] == arr[i]) twice_count--; } // return the half of twice_count return twice_count/2; } // Driver method to test the above function public static void main(String[] args) { int sum = 6; System.out.println("Count of pairs is " + getPairsCount(arr.length,sum)); } } // This code is contributed by Gaurav Miglani
