# Elements of first array that have more frequencies

• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 24 May, 2021

Given two arrays (which may or may not be sorted). These arrays are such that they might have some common elements in them. We need to find elements whose counts of occurrences are more in first array than second.
Examples:

```Input : ar1[] = {1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5}
ar2[] = {2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4}
Output : 1 2 5
1 occurs one times in first and zero times in second
2 occurs three times in first and two times in second
............................

Input : ar1[] = {1, 3, 4, 2, 3}
ar2[] = {3, 4, 5}
Output : 3```

The idea is to use hashing. We traverse first array and insert all elements and their frequencies in a hash table. Now we traverse through the second array and reduce frequencies in hash table for the common elements. Now we traverse through first array again and print those elements whose frequencies are still more than 0. To avoid repeated printing of same elements, we set frequency as 0.

 `// C++ program to print all those elements of``// first array that have more frequencies than``// second array.``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Compares two intervals according to staring times.``void` `moreFreq(``int` `ar1[], ``int` `ar2[], ``int` `m, ``int` `n)``{``    ``// Traverse first array and store frequencies``    ``// of all elements``    ``unordered_map<``int``, ``int``> mp;``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < m; i++)``        ``mp[ar1[i]]++;` `    ``// Traverse second array and reduce frequencies``    ``// of common elements.``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < n; i++)``        ``if` `(mp.find(ar2[i]) != mp.end())``            ``mp[ar2[i]]--;` `    ``// Now traverse first array again and print``    ``// all those elements whose frequencies are``    ``// more than 0.
