Given an array arr of size N and a value K, the task is to empty this array by removing a maximum of K from it. Print the value removed if the array was emptied, else -1.
Examples: 
 

Input: arr[] = {2, 2}, K = 5 
Output:
Explanation: 
After removing arr[1] (=2) from K (=5), K = 5 – 2 = 3 
After removing arr[2] (=2) from K (=3), K = 3 – 2 = 1 
Since the array has been emptied and K is still > 0 
Therefore the value removed = 2 + 2 = 4
Input: arr[] = {5, 3, 2, 2}, K = 10 
Output: -1 
Explanation: 
After removing arr[1] (=5) from K (=10), K = 10 – 5 = 5 
After removing arr[2] (=3) from K (=5), K = 5 – 3 = 2 
After removing arr[3] (=2) from K (=2), K = 2 – 2 = 0 
After removing arr[4] (=2) from K (=0), K = 0 – 2 = -2 
Since the array has been emptied and K is < 0 
Therefore the array cannot be emptied for this K 
hence the output is -1 
 

 

Approach:
 

  • The given problem can be observed as finding the total sum of the array arr and removing this sum from K. 
     
  • If this sum is less than or equal to K, then the array can be emptied and the output will be the sum of the array. 
     
  • Else the output will be -1. 
     

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ program to empty an Array
// by removing a maximum of K value from it
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to Empty an Array by removing
// maximum of K value from it
void emptyArray(long long int n,
                long long int k,
                long long int arr[])
{
    long long int sum = 0, i;
 
    // Find the total sum of the array
    for (i = 0; i < n; i++)
        sum += arr[i];
 
    // Find if sum is less than or equal to K
    if (sum <= k)
        cout << sum << "\n";
    else
        cout << -1 << "\n";
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
 
    long long int n = 2, k = 5;
    long long int arr[] = { 2, 2 };
 
    emptyArray(n, k, arr);
 
    n = 4, k = 10;
    long long int arr1[] = { 5, 3, 2, 2 };
 
    emptyArray(n, k, arr1);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to empty an Array
// by removing a maximum of K value from it
class GFG
{
     
    // Function to Empty an Array by removing
    // maximum of K value from it
    static void emptyArray(int n, int k, int arr[])
    {
        int sum = 0, i;
     
        // Find the total sum of the array
        for (i = 0; i < n; i++)
            sum += arr[i];
     
        // Find if sum is less than or equal to K
        if (sum <= k)
            System.out.println(sum);
        else
            System.out.println(-1);
    }
     
    // Driver code
    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
        int n = 2;
        int k = 5;
        int arr[] = { 2, 2 };
     
        emptyArray(n, k, arr);
     
        n = 4; k = 10;
        int arr1[] = { 5, 3, 2, 2 };
     
        emptyArray(n, k, arr1);
    }
}
