Find the maximum possible value of the minimum value of modified array

  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2021

Given an array of size N  and a number S  . The task is to modify the given array such that: 
 

  • The difference between the sum of the array elements before and after modification is exactly equal to S.
  • Modified array elements should be non-negative.
  • The minimum value in the modified array must be maximized.
  • To modify the given array, you can increment or decrement any element of the array.

The task is to find the minimum number of the modified array. If it is not possible then print -1. The minimum number should be as maximum as possible.
Examples: 
 

Input : a[] = {2, 2, 3}, S = 1
Output : 2
Explanation : Modified array is {2, 2, 2}

Input : a[] = {1, 3, 5}, S = 10
Output : -1

 

An efficient approach is to make a binary search between the minimum and the maximum possible value of the minimum number in a modified array. The minimum possible value is zero and the maximum possible array is minimum number in a given array. If given array elements sum is less than S then answer is not possible. so, print -1. If given array elements sum equals to S then answer will be zero.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
 

C++




// CPP program to find the maximum possible
// value of the minimum value of
// modified array
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find the maximum possible value
// of the minimum value of the modified array
int maxOfMin(int a[], int n, int S)
{
    // To store minimum value of array
    int mi = INT_MAX;
 
    // To store sum of elements of array
    int s1 = 0;
 
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        s1 += a[i];
        mi = min(a[i], mi);
    }
 
    // Solution is not possible
    if (s1 < S)
        return -1;
 
    // zero is the possible value
    if (s1 == S)
        return 0;
 
    // minimum possible value
    int low = 0;
 
    // maximum possible value
    int high = mi;
 
    // to store a required answer
    int ans;
 
    // Binary Search
    while (low <= high) {
 
        int mid = (low + high) / 2;
 
        // If mid is possible then try to increase
        // required answer
        if (s1 - (mid * n) >= S) {
            ans = mid;
            low = mid + 1;
        }
 
        // If mid is not possible then decrease
        // required answer
        else
            high = mid - 1;
    }
 
    // Return required answer
    return ans;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int a[] = { 10, 10, 10, 10, 10 };
 
    int S = 10;
 
    int n = sizeof(a) / sizeof(a[0]);
 
    cout << maxOfMin(a, n, S);
 
    return 0;
}
