# Find element in a sorted array whose frequency is greater than or equal to n/2.

Given a sorted array of length n, find the number in array that appears more than or equal to n/2 times. It is given that such element always exists.
Examples:

```Input :  2 3 3 4
Output : 3

Input :  3 4 5 5 5
Output : 5

Input : 1 1 1 2 3
Output : 1```

To find that number, we traverse the array and check the frequency of every element in array if it is greater than or equals to n/2 but it requires extra space and time complexity will be O(n).
But we can see that the if there is number that comes more than or equal to n/2 times in a sorted array, then that number must be present at the position n/2 i.e. a[n/2].

## C++

 `// C++ code to find majority element in a``// sorted array``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `int` `findMajority(``int` `arr[], ``int` `n)``{``    ``return` `arr[n / 2];``}` `int` `main()``{``    ``int` `arr[] = { 1, 2, 2, 3 };``    ``int` `n = ``sizeof``(arr) / ``sizeof``(arr);``    ``cout << findMajority(arr, n);``    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java

 `// Java code to find majority element in a``// sorted array``public` `class` `Test {` `    ``public` `static` `int` `findMajority(``int` `arr[], ``int` `n)``    ``{``        ``return` `arr[n / ``2``];``    ``}``    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[])``    ``{``        ``int` `arr[] = { ``1``, ``2``, ``2``, ``3` `};``        ``int` `n = arr.length;``        ``System.out.println(findMajority(arr, n));``    ``}``}`

## Python 3

 `# Python 3 code to find``# majority element in a``# sorted array` `def` `findMajority(arr, n):` `    ``return` `arr[``int``(n ``/` `2``)]` `# Driver Code``arr ``=` `[``1``, ``2``, ``2``, ``3``]``n ``=` `len``(arr)``print``(findMajority(arr, n))` `# This code is contributed by Smitha.`
