Maximize Sum possible by subtracting same value from all elements of a Subarray of the given Array
  • Last Updated : 17 Sep, 2020

Given an array a[] consisting of N integers, the task is to find the maximum possible sum that can be achieved by deducting any value, say X, from all elements of a subarray.

Examples:

Input: N = 3, a[] = {80, 48, 82} 
Output: 144 
Explanation: 
48 can be deducted from each array element. Therefore, sum obtained = 48 * 3 = 144

Input: N = a[] = {8, 40, 77} 
Output: 80 
Explanation: 
Subtracting 8 from all array elements generates sum 24. 
Subtracting 40 from arr[1] and arr[2] generates sum 80. 
Subtracting 77 from arr[2] generates sum 77. 
Therefore, maximum possible sum is 80.

Approach: 
Follow the steps below to solve the problem:



  • Traverse the array
  • For every element, find the element which is nearest smaller on its left and nearest smaller on its right.
  • Calculate the sum possible by that element calculating current_element * ( j – i – 1 ) where j and i are the indices of the nearest smaller numbers on the left and right respectively.
  • Find the maximum possible sum among all of them.

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 generate previous smaller 
// element for each array element
vector<int> findPrevious(vector<int> a, int n)
{
    vector<int> ps(n);
  
    // The first element has no
    // previous smaller
    ps[0] = -1;
  
    // Stack to keep track of elements
    // that have occurred previously
    stack<int> Stack;
  
    // Push the first index
    Stack.push(0);
      
    for(int i = 1; i < n; i++)
    {
          
        // Pop all the elements until the previous
        // element is smaller than current element
        while (Stack.size() > 0 && 
             a[Stack.top()] >= a[i])
            Stack.pop();
  
        // Store the previous smaller element
        ps[i] = Stack.size() > 0 ? 
                Stack.top() : -1;
  
        // Push the index of the current element
        Stack.push(i);
    }
  
    // Return the array
    return ps;
}
  
// Function to generate next smaller element
// for each array element
vector<int> findNext(vector<int> a, int n)
{
    vector<int> ns(n);
  
    ns[n - 1] = n;
  
    // Stack to keep track of elements
    // that have occurring next
    stack<int> Stack;
    Stack.push(n - 1);
  
    // Iterate in reverse order
    // for calculating next smaller
    for(int i = n - 2; i >= 0; i--)
    {
          
        // Pop all the elements until the
        // next element is smaller
        // than current element
        while (Stack.size() > 0 && 
             a[Stack.top()] >= a[i])
            Stack.pop();
  
        // Store the next smaller element
        ns[i] = Stack.size() > 0 ? 
                Stack.top() : n;
  
        // Push the index of the current element
        Stack.push(i);
    }
  
    // Return the array
    return ns;
}
  
// Function to find the maximum sum by
// subtracting same value from all
// elements of a Subarray
int findMaximumSum(vector<int> a, int n)
{
      
    // Stores previous smaller element
    vector<int> prev_smaller = findPrevious(a, n);
  
    // Stores next smaller element
    vector<int> next_smaller = findNext(a, n);
  
    int max_value = 0;
    for(int i = 0; i < n; i++)
    {
          
        // Calculate contribution
        // of each element
        max_value = max(max_value, a[i] * 
                       (next_smaller[i] - 
                        prev_smaller[i] - 1));
    }
  
    // Return answer
    return max_value;
}
  
// Driver Code    
int main()
{
    int n = 3;
    vector<int> a{ 80, 48, 82 };
      
    cout << findMaximumSum(a, n);
      
    return 0;
