Find pairs in array whose sum does not exist in Array

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 18 May, 2021

Given an array arr[] consisting of N positive integers, the task is to print all pairs of array elements whose sum does not exist in the given array. If no such pair exists, print “-1”.
Examples:

Input: arr[] = {2, 4, 2, 6} 
Output: 
(2, 6) 
(4, 6) 
(2, 6) 
Explanation: 
All possible pairs in the array are (2, 4), (2, 2), (2, 6), (4, 2), (4, 6) and (2, 6). 
Among these, the pairs (2, 6), (4, 6) and (2, 6) have sums {8, 10, 8} respectively which are not present in the array.
Input: arr[] = {1, 1, 2, 3} 
Output: 
(2, 3) 
Explanation: 
All possible pairs in the array are (1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 2), (1, 3) and (2, 3). 
Among these, the only pair whose sum is not present in the array is (2, 3).

Naive Approach: 
The simplest approach to solve the problem is to generate all possible pairs one by one, and for every pair check if its sum exists in the array by traversing the array. If any pair is found with its sum existing in the array, print the pair. Otherwise, move to the next pair. 
Time Complexity: O(N3
Auxiliary Space: O(N)
Efficient Approach: 
The problem can be solved using a HashSet. Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

  • Store the elements in the of the array in a HashSet.
  • Now, traverse over all the array elements and generate all possible pairs.
  • For each pair, check if the sum of that pair is present in the HashSet or not. If so, print the pair. Otherwise, move to the next pair.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ program to implement
// the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to print all pairs
// with sum not present in the array
void findPair(int arr[], int n)
{
    int i, j;
 
    // Corner Case
    if (n < 2)
    {
        cout << "-1" << endl;
    }
 
    // Stores the distinct array
    // elements
    set <int> hashMap;
 
    for(int k = 0; k < n; k++)
    {
        hashMap.insert(arr[k]);
    }
 
    // Generate all possible pairs
    for(i = 0; i < n - 1; i++)
    {
        for(j = i + 1; j < n; j++)
        {
             
            // Calculate sum of current pair
            int sum = arr[i] + arr[j];
 
            // Check if the sum exists in
            // the HashSet or not
            if (hashMap.find(sum) == hashMap.end())
            {
     
                cout << "(" << arr[i] << ", "
                    << arr[j] << ")" << endl;
            }
        }
    }
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 2, 4, 2, 6 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
 
    findPair(arr, n);
    return 0;
}

        int[] arr, int n)

        int i, j;
 
        // Corner Case
        if (n < 2) {
            System.out.println("-1");
        }
 
        // Stores the distinct array
        // elements
        HashSet<Integer> hashMap
            = new HashSet<Integer>();
 
        for (Integer k : arr) {
            hashMap.add(k);
        }
 
        // Generate all possible pairs
        for (i = 0; i < n - 1; i++) {
 
            for (j = i + 1; j < n; j++) {
 
                // Calculate sum of current pair
                int sum = arr[i] + arr[j];
 
                // Check if the sum exists in
                // the HashSet or not
                if (!hashMap.contains(sum)) {
 
                    System.out.println(
                        "(" + arr[i] + ", "
                        + arr[j] + ")");
                }
            }
        }
    }
 
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        int[] arr = { 2, 4, 2, 6 };
        int n = arr.length;
 
        findPair(arr, n);
    }
}
