Fill an array based on frequency where elements are in range from 0 to n-1
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 13 May, 2021

Given an array of positive integers with duplicate allowed. The array contains elements from range 0 to n-1. The task is to fill the array such that arr[i] contains the frequency of i.
 

Examples :  

Input  : arr[] = {1, 4, 3, 4, 1, 1, 4, 4, 4, 7}
Output : arr[] = {0, 3, 0, 1, 5, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0}
Here 0 appears 0 times, so arr[0] is 0
     1 appears 3 times 
     2 appears 0 times 
     3 appears 0 times 
     4 appears 5 times 
     ..........

Input  : arr[] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 1, 4, 5, 6, 7}
Output : arr[] = {0, 3, 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0} 

A simple solution of this problem is to run two loops. The outer loop picks elements one by one. The inner loop counts frequency of the picked element and stores frequency in final array.

An efficient solution is to use an auxiliary array of size n.  

1) Create an array temp[0..n-1] and 
   initialize it as 0.
2) Traverse given array and do following
   for every element arr[i].
     temp[arr[i]]++
3) Copy temp[] to arr[].

Below is the implementation of above steps. 



C++




// C++ program to fill an array with frequencies.
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Fills arr[] with frequencies of elements
void fillWithFreq(int arr[], int n)
{
    int temp[n];
    memset(temp, 0, sizeof(temp));
 
    // Fill temp with frequencies
    for (int i=0; i<n; i++)
        temp[arr[i]] += 1;
 
    // Copy temp to array
    for (int i=0; i<n; i++)
        arr[i] = temp[i];
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = {5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 4, 5, 6, 7};
    int n = sizeof(arr)/sizeof(arr[0]);
    fillWithFreq(arr, n);
    for (int i=0; i<n; i++)
        cout << arr[i] << " ";
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to fill an array with frequencies.
import java.util.Arrays;
 
class GFG {
     
    // Fills arr[] with frequencies of elements
    static void fillWithFreq(int arr[], int n)
    {
         
        int temp[]=new int[n];
        Arrays.fill(temp, 0);
     
        // Fill temp with frequencies
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
            temp[arr[i]] += 1;
     
        // Copy temp to array
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
            arr[i] = temp[i];
    }
     
    // Driver method
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
         
        int arr[] = {5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 4, 5, 6, 7};
        int n = arr.length;
         
        fillWithFreq(arr, n);
         
        for (int i=0; i<n; i++)
            System.out.print(arr[i] + " ");
    }
}
