Find all subsequences with sum equals to K

  • Difficulty Level : Hard
  • Last Updated : 25 Oct, 2021

Given an array arr[] of length N and a number K, the task is to find all the subsequences of the array whose sum of elements is K

Input: arr[] = {1, 2, 3}, K = 3 
Output: 
1 2 
3



Input: arr[] = {17, 18, 6, 11, 2, 4}, K = 6 
Output: 
2 4 
6  

Approach: 
The idea is to use the jagged array to store the subsequences of the array of different lengths.For every element in the array, there are mainly two choices for it that is either to include in the subsequence or not. Apply this for every element in the array by reducing the sum, if the element is included otherwise search for the subsequence without including it.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:  

C++




// C++ implementation to find all the
// subsequence whose sum is K
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Utility function to find the subsequences
// whose sum of the element is K
int subsetSumToK(int arr[], int n,
            int output[][50], int k){
     
    // Base Case
    if (n == 0) {
        if (k == 0) {
            output[0][0] = 0;
            return 1;
        }
        else {
            return 0;
        }
    }
     
    // Array to store the subsequences
    // which includes the element arr[0]
    int output1[1000][50];
     
    // Array to store the subsequences
    // which not includes the element arr[0]
    int output2[1000][50];
     
    // Recursive call to find the subsequences
    // which includes the element arr[0]
    int size1 = subsetSumToK(arr + 1,
        n - 1, output1, k - arr[0]);
     
    // Recursive call to find the subsequences
    // which not includes the element arr[0]
    int size2 = subsetSumToK(arr + 1, n - 1,
                                output2, k);
 
    int i, j;
     
    // Loop to update the results of the
    // Recursive call of the function
    for (i = 0; i < size1; i++) {
         
        // Incremeing the length of
        // jagged array because it includes
        // the arr[0] element of the array
        output[i][0] = output1[i][0] + 1;
         
        // In the first column of the jagged
        // array put the arr[0] element
        output[i][1] = arr[0];
    }
     
    // Loop to update the subsequence
    // in the output array
    for (i = 0; i < size1; i++) {
        for (j = 1; j <= output1[i][0]; j++) {
            output[i][j + 1] = output1[i][j];
        }
    }
     
    // Loop to update the subsequences
    // which do not include the arr[0] element
    for (i = 0; i < size2; i++) {
        for (j = 0; j <= output2[i][0]; j++) {
            output[i + size1][j] = output2[i][j];
        }
    }
     
    return size1 + size2;
}
 
// Function to find the subsequences
// whose sum of the element is K
void countSubsequences(int arr[], int n,
            int output[][50], int k)
{  
    int size = subsetSumToK(arr, n, output, k);
     
    for (int i = 0; i < size; i++) {
        for (int j = 1; j <= output[i][0]; j++) {
            cout << output[i][j] << " ";
        }
        cout << endl;
    }   
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = {5, 12, 3, 17, 1, 18, 15, 3, 17};
    int length = 9, output[1000][50], k = 6;
 
    countSubsequences(arr, length, output, k);
 
    return 0;
