Longest sub-sequence with maximum GCD
  • Last Updated : 12 May, 2021

Given an array arr[] of length N, the task is to find the length of the longest sub-sequence with the maximum possible GCD.
Examples: 
 

Input: arr[] = {2, 1, 2} 
Output:
{2}, {2} and {2, 2} are the subsequences 
with the maximum possible GCD.
Input: arr[] = {1, 2, 3} 
Output:
{3} is the required subsequence. 
 

 

Approach: The maximum possible GCD from the array will be equal to the value of the largest element in the array. Now, to maximize the length of the resulting subsequence, find the number of elements with a value equal to this largest value in the array, and the count of these elements is the required answer.
Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to return the length
// of the largest subsequence with
// maximum possible GCD
int maxLen(int* arr, int n)
{
    // Maximum value from the array
    int max_val = *max_element(arr, arr + n);
 
    // To store the frequency of the
    // maximum element in the array
    int freq = 0;
 
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
 
        // If current element is equal
        // to the maximum element
        if (arr[i] == max_val)
            freq++;
    }
 
    return freq;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 3, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(int);
 
    cout << maxLen(arr, n);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation of the approach
import java.util.Arrays;
 
class GFG
{
 
// Function to return the length
// of the largest subsequence with
// maximum possible GCD
static int maxLen(int[] arr, int n)
{
    // Maximum value from the array
    int max_val = Arrays.stream(arr).max().getAsInt();
 
    // To store the frequency of the
    // maximum element in the array
    int freq = 0;
 
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
    {
 
        // If current element is equal
        // to the maximum element
        if (arr[i] == max_val)
            freq++;
    }
    return freq;
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main(String []args)
{
    int arr[] = { 3, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3 };
    int n = arr.length;
 
    System.out.println(maxLen(arr, n));
}
}

Python3




# Python3 implementation of the approach
 
# Function to return the length
# of the largest subsequence with
# maximum possible GCD
def maxLen(arr, n) :
     
    # Maximum value from the array
    max_val = max(arr);
 
    # To store the frequency of the
    # maximum element in the array
    freq = 0;
 
    for i in range(n) :
 
        # If current element is equal
        # to the maximum element
        if (arr[i] == max_val) :
            freq += 1;
 
    return freq;
 
# Driver code
if __name__ == "__main__" :
 
    arr = [ 3, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3 ];
    n = len(arr);
 
    print(maxLen(arr, n));

// Function to return the length

{
    // Maximum value from the array
    int max_val = arr.Max();
 
    // To store the frequency of the

    int freq = 0;
 
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)

// Javascript implementation of the approach
 
// Function to return the length

function maxLen(arr, n)
{
    // Maximum value from the array
    var max_val = arr.reduce((a,b) => Math.max(a,b));
 
    // To store the frequency of the
    // maximum element in the array
    var freq = 0;
 
    for (var i = 0; i < n; i++) {
 
        // If current element is equal

            freq++;

    return freq;
}
 
// Driver code
var arr = [3, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3];
var n = arr.length;
document.write( maxLen(arr, n));
 
</script>
Output:
