Count pairs with given sum

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.

Output :

Count of pairs is 3

Time Complexity : O(n2)
Auxiliary Space : O(1)

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

Below is the Algorithm.

  1. Create a map to store frequency of each number in the array. (Single traversal is required)
  2. 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.
  3. 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 :
