# Hammered distance between N points in a 2-D plane

Given n number of point in 2-d plane followed by Xi, Yi describing n points. The task is to calculate the hammered distance of n points.
Note: Hammered distance is the sum of the square of the shortest distance between every pair of the point.

Examples:

Input: n = 3
0 1
0 0
1 0
Output: 4

Input: n = 4
1 0
2 0
3 0
4 0
Output: 20


Basic Approach:As we have to find out sum of square of shortest distance among all the pairs.So, we can take every possible pair and calculate the sum of square of distance.

// Pseudo code to find hammered-distance using above approach.
//this will store hammered distance
Distance=0
for(int i=0;i<n;i++)
{
for(int j=i+1;j<n;j++)
{
//shortest distance between point i and j.
Distance+=(x[i]-x[j])^2+(y[i]-y[j])^2
}
}


Its time complexity will be O(n^2).
Efficient Approach: This problem can be solved in time complexity of O(N). Below is the implementation of above approach:

## C++

 // C++ implementation of above approach  #include  #define ll long long int  using namespace std;    // Function calculate cummalative sum  // of x, y, x^2, y^2 coordinates.  void cumm(vector& x, vector& y,          vector& cummx, vector& cummy,          vector& cummx2, vector& cummy2, ll n)  {      for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {          cummx[i] = cummx[i - 1] + x[i];          cummy[i] = cummy[i - 1] + y[i];          cummx2[i] = cummx2[i - 1] + x[i] * x[i];          cummy2[i] = cummy2[i - 1] + y[i] * y[i];      }  }    // Function ot calculate the hammered distance  int calHammeredDistance(int n, vector& x, vector& y)  {      // cummx conatins cummulative sum of x      // cummy conatins cummulative sum of y      vector cummx(n + 1, 0), cummy(n + 1, 0);        // cummx2 conatins cummulative sum of x^2      // cummy2 conatins cummulative sum of y^2      vector cummx2(n + 1, 0), cummy2(n + 1, 0);        // calculate cummalative of x      //, y, x^2, y^2, because these terms      // required in formula to reduce complexity.        // this function calculate all required terms.      cumm(x, y, cummx, cummy, cummx2, cummy2, n);        // hdx calculate hammer distance for x coordinate      // hdy calculate hammer distance for y coordinate      ll hdx = 0, hdy = 0;        for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {            // came from formula describe in explanation          hdx += (i - 1) * x[i] * x[i] + cummx2[i - 1]              - 2 * x[i] * cummx[i - 1];            // came from formula describe in explanation          hdy += (i - 1) * y[i] * y[i] + cummy2[i - 1]              - 2 * y[i] * cummy[i - 1];      }        // total is the sum of both x and y.      ll total = hdx + hdy;      return total;  }    // Driver code  int main()  {      // number of points      int n = 3;        // x contains the x coordinates      // y conatins the y coordinates      //and converting the size to n+1     vector x = {0, 0, 1, 0};     vector y = {1, 0, 0, 0};       cout << calHammeredDistance(n, x, y);        return 0;  }
