Largest subset having with sum less than equal to sum of respective indices

  • Last Updated : 11 May, 2021

Given an array arr[], the task is to find the length of the largest subset with the sum of elements less than or equal to the sum of its indexes(1-based indexing).

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {1, 7, 3, 5, 9, 6, 6} 
Output:
Explanation: 
Largest Subset is {1, 3, 5, 6, 6} 
Sum of indexes = 1 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 7 = 21 
Sum of elements = 1 + 3 + 5 + 6 + 6 = 21

Input: arr[] = {4, 1, 6, 7, 8, 2} 
Output: 3

Naive Approach: 
The simplest approach to solve the problem is to generate all possible subsets and calculate the length of the subsets which have the sum of elements less than or equal to the sum of its respective indices. 



Time Complexity: O(N*2N
Auxiliary Space: O(N)

Efficient Approach: 
Follow the steps below to solve the problem: 

  • Iterate over all indices and consider only those indices whose values are greater than or equal to the values of the respective values stored in them.
  • Keep updating the sum of the differences obtained in the above step.
  • For the remaining elements, store their differences with their respective indexes. Sort the differences.
  • Include elements into the subset one by one and subtract the difference from the sum. Keep including until an element is encountered whose difference with its index exceeds the remaining sum or all array elements have already been included.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ Program to implement
// the above approach
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find the length
// of the longest subset
int findSubset(int* a, int n)
{
    // Stores the sum of differences
    // between elements and
    // their respective index
    int sum = 0;
 
    // Stores the size of
    // the subset
    int cnt = 0;
 
    vector<int> v;
 
    // Iterate over the array
    for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {
 
        // If an element which is
        // smaller than or equal
        // to its index is encountered
        if (a[i - 1] - i <= 0) {
 
            // Increase count and sum
            sum += a[i - 1] - i;
            cnt += 1;
        }
 
        // Store the difference with
        // index of the remaining
        // elements
        else {
            v.push_back(a[i - 1] - i);
        }
    }
 
    // Sort the differences
    // in increasing order
    sort(v.begin(), v.end());
 
    int ptr = 0;
 
    // Include the differences while
    // sum remains positive or
    while (ptr < v.size()
           && sum + v[ptr] <= 0) {
        cnt += 1;
        ptr += 1;
        sum += v[ptr];
    }
 
    // Return the size
    return cnt;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 4, 1, 6, 7,
                  8, 2 };
 
    int n = sizeof(arr)
            / sizeof(arr[0]);
 
    // Function Calling
    cout << findSubset(arr, n)
         << endl;
}
