Generate Array whose difference of each element with its left yields the given Array
  • Last Updated : 05 Mar, 2021

Given an integer N and an arr1[], of (N – 1) integers, the task is to find the sequence arr2[] of N integers in the range [1, N] such that arr1[i] = arr2[i+1] – arr2[i]. The integers in sequence arr1[] lies in range [-N, N].
Examples: 
 

Input: N = 3, arr1[] = {-2, 1} 
Output: arr2[] = {3, 1, 2} 
Explanation: 
arr2[1] – arr2[0] = (1 – 3) = -2 = arr1[0] 
arr2[2] – arr2[1] = (2 – 1) = 1 = arr1[1]
Input: N = 5, arr1 = {1, 1, 1, 1, 1} 
Output: arr2 = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} 
Explanation: 
arr2[1] – arr2[0] = (2 – 1) = 1 = arr1[0] 
arr2[2] – arr2[1] = (3 – 2) = 1 = arr1[1] 
arr2[3] – arr2[2] = (4 – 3) = 1 = arr1[2] 
arr2[4] – arr2[3] = (5 – 4) = 1 = arr1[3] 
 

 

Approach: 
Follow the steps to solve the problem: 
 

  1. Assume the first element of arr2[] to be X.
  2. The next element will be X + arr1[0].
  3. The rest of the elements of arr2[] can be represented, w.r.t X.
  4. It is known that the sequence arr2[] can contain integers in the range [1, N]. So the minimum possible integer would be 1.
  5. The minimum number of the arr2[] can be found out in terms of X, and equate it with 1 to find the value of X.
  6. Finally using the values of X, all the other numbers in arr2[] can be found out.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 



C++




// C++ program for the above approach

    int b[n];
    int x = 0;
 
    // initializing 1st element
    b[0] = x;
 
    // Creating sequence in
    // terms of x
    for (int i = 0;
         i < n - 1; i++) {
 
        b[i + 1] = x +
                   arr[i] + b[i];
    }
 
    int mn = n;
 
    // Finding min element
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
    {
        mn = min(mn, b[i]);
    }
 
    // Finding value of x
    x = 1 - mn;
 
    // Creating original sequence
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        b[i] += x;
    }
 
    // Output original sequence
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        cout << b[i] << " ";
    }
    cout << endl;
}

    return 0;
}
