Fractional Knapsack Queries
Given an integer array, consisting of positive weights “W” and there values “V” respectively as a pair and some queries consisting of an integer ‘C’ specifying the capacity of the knapsack, find the maximum value of products that can be put in the knapsack if the breaking of items is allowed.
Examples:
Input: arr[] = { {1, 2}, {1, 3}, {3, 7} }, q = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}
Output: {3, 5.33333, 7.66667, 10, 12}
For ‘C’ = 1, we will fill the knapsack with element of value 3.
For ‘C’ = 2, first, we fill with element of value 3, then remaining 1 capacity
with element with value 7.
For ‘C’ = 3, first we fill with element of value 3, then remaining 2 capacities
with element with value 7.
For ‘C’ = 4, first we fill with element of value 3, then remaining 3 capacities
with element with value 7.
For ‘C’ = 5, first we fill with element of value 3, next 3 capacities
with element with value 7 and remaining 1 with element of value 1.

Naive Approach: A simple approach will be to sort the array in decreasing order of V/W values i.e. there value/weight ratio. Then, for each query, we will iterate the array sum up the required integer values while the knapsack isn’t completely full.
Time Complexity : O(q*n*log(n))
Efficient approach: Queries can be optimized by performing prefix_sum of a sorted array on both weight and value.
Below is the algorithm:
 Sort the array by there Value/Weight ratio in descending order.
 Find prefixsum of Weight and Value respectively of the array.

 For answering a query:
 Perform a binary search to find the first element with prefix_sum on weight(W) larger than ‘C’. Strictly speaking, find upper bound on the value of ‘C’ in a prefix_sum array of ‘W’. Let’s say this element is at an index ‘X’.
 Include sum of values from index {0, X1} and the fractional value from index ‘X’ that can be accommodated in remaining capacity.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
// C++ program to implement above approach #include <bits/stdc++.h> using namespace std; // Function on the basis of which we will // perform the sorting bool comp(pair< int , int > a, pair< int , int > b) { return ( double )a.second / a.first > ( double )b.second / b.first; } // Function to sort the array on its value/weight // and performsum on both weight and value void preProcess(pair< int , int > arr[], int n) { sort(arr, arr + n, comp); for ( int i = 1; i < n; i++) { arr[i].first += arr[i  1].first; arr[i].second += arr[i  1].second; } } // Function to answer queries double maxValue( int w, pair< int , int > arr[], int n) { // If w is large enough // to cover all weights if (arr[n  1].first <= w) return arr[n  1].second; // Value to search on arr pair< int , int > search_bound = { w, INT_MAX }; // Index of the item which we we will put // partially in our knapsack int x = upper_bound(arr, arr + n, search_bound)  arr; // Required value if (x == 0) return ( double )w * arr[0].second / arr[0].first; else return arr[x  1].second + ( double )(w  arr[x  1].first) * (arr[x].second  arr[x  1].second) / (arr[x].first  arr[x  1].first); } void PrintQueries( int query[], pair< int , int > arr[], int n, int m) { for ( int i = 0; i < m; i += 1) { cout << maxValue(query[i], arr, n) << endl; } } // Driver code int main() { // Input array representing the data of w[] and v[] pair< int , int > arr[] = { { 1, 2 }, { 1, 3 }, { 3, 7 } }; int query[5] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 }; // Size of the array int n = sizeof (arr) / sizeof (pair< int , int >); int m = sizeof (query) / sizeof (query[0]); // Preprocessing preProcess(arr, n); PrintQueries(query, arr, n, m); return 0; }
