# Maximum sum subarray having sum less than or equal to given sum

Given an array of integers and a sum. We have to find sum of subarray having maximum sum less than or equal to given sum in array.

Examples:

```Input : arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 }
sum = 11
Output : 10
Subarray having maximum sum is { 1, 2, 3, 4 }

Input : arr[] = { 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 }
sum = 7
Output : 6
Subarray having maximum sum is { 2, 4 } or { 6 }
```

## Recommended: Please solve it on “PRACTICE ” first, before moving on to the solution.

Naive Approach: We can find maximum sum of subarray by running two loops. But the time complecxity will be O(N*N).

Efficient Approach: The subarray having maximum sum can be found by using sliding window. If curr_sum is less than sum include array elements to it. If it becomes greater than sum remove elements from start in curr_sum.
