Increasing sequence with given GCD

Given two integers n and g, the task is to generate an increasing sequence of n integers such that:

  1. The gcd of all the elements of the sequence is g.
  2. And, the sum of all the elements is minimum among all possible sequences.

Examples:

Input: n = 6, g = 5
Output: 5 10 15 20 25 30

Input: n = 5, g = 3
Output: 3 6 9 12 15

Approach: The sum of the sequence will be minimum when the sequence will consist of the elements:
g, 2 * g, 3 * g, 4 * g, ….., n * g.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

// Function to print the required sequence
void generateSequence(int n, int g)
{
    for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++)
        cout << i * g << " ";
}
  
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int n = 6, g = 5;
    generateSequence(n, g);
  
    return 0;
