Distributing items when a person cannot take more than two items of same type
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 29 Sep, 2020

Given N sweets which can be of many different types and k customers, one customer won’t take the same type of sweet more than 2 pieces, the task is to find if it is possible to distribute all sweets then print “Yes” otherwise “No”.
Given array arr[] represents array of sweets arr[i] is type of sweet.
Examples: 
 

Input : arr[] = {1, 1, 2, 3, 1}, 
            k = 2;
Output : Yes
There are three pieces of sweet type 1,
one piece of type 2 and one piece of 
type 3. Two customers can distribute 
sweets under given constraints.

Input : arr[] = {2, 3, 3, 5, 3, 3}, 
            k = 2;
Output : Yes

Input : arr[] = {2, 3, 3, 5, 3, 3, 3}, 
            k = 2;
Output : No


 

Method 1: 
1- Traverse array for each element. 
2- Count occurrences of each element in array 
3- Check Resulting occurrence of each element must be less than or equal to 2*k.

Output:

Yes

Time Complexity: O(n^2) 
Method 2: 
1. Maintain a hash for 32 different type of sweets. 
2. Traverse an array and check for every arr[i] 
 



hash[arr[i]] <= 2*k.
