Delete all odd frequency elements from an Array

  • Last Updated : 24 May, 2021
Geek Week

Given an array arr containing integers of size N, the task is to delete all the elements from the array that have odd frequencies.
Examples: 
 

Input: arr[] = {3, 3, 3, 2, 2, 4, 7, 7} 
Output: {2, 2, 7, 7} 
Explanation: 
Frequency of 3 = 3 
Frequency of 2 = 2 
Frequency of 4 = 1 
Frequency of 7 = 2 
Therefore, the elements 3 and 4 have odd frequencies, and hence the are removed.
Input: arr[] = {1, 3, 3, 1, 2, 5, 6, 5} 
Output: {1, 3, 3, 1, 5, 5} 
 

 

Approach: 
 

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 



C++




// C++ program to removes all odd
// frequency elements from an Array
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function that removes the
// elements which have odd
// frequencies in the array
void remove(int arr[], int n)
{
    // Create a map to store the
    // frequency of each element
    unordered_map<int, int> m;
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        m[arr[i]]++;
    }
 
    // Remove the elements which
    // have odd frequencies
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
 
        // If the element has
        // odd frequency then skip
        if ((m[arr[i]] & 1))
            continue;
 
        cout << arr[i] << ", ";
    }
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[]
        = { 3, 3, 3, 2,
            2, 4, 7, 7 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
 
    // Function call
    remove(arr, n);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to removes all odd
// frequency elements from an Array
import java.util.*;
 
class GFG {
 
    // Function that removes the
    // elements which have odd
    // frequencies in the array
    static void remove(int arr[], int n) {
        // Create a map to store the
        // frequency of each element
        HashMap<Integer, Integer> mp = new HashMap<Integer, Integer>();
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
            if (mp.containsKey(arr[i])) {
                mp.put(arr[i], mp.get(arr[i]) + 1);
            } else {
                mp.put(arr[i], 1);
            }
        }
 
        // Remove the elements which
        // have odd frequencies
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
 
            // If the element has
            // odd frequency then skip
            if ((mp.containsKey(arr[i]) && mp.get(arr[i]) % 2 == 1))
                continue;
 
            System.out.print(arr[i] + ", ");
        }
    }
 
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        int arr[] = { 3, 3, 3, 2, 2, 4, 7, 7 };
        int n = arr.length;
 
        // Function call
        remove(arr, n);
 
    }
}

    for i in range(n) :
