Minimum size Subarray with maximum sum in non-increasing order

  • Difficulty Level : Hard
  • Last Updated : 19 May, 2021

Given an array arr, the task is to find a subarray of the array elements whose sum is strictly greater than the rest of the elements. The size of the subarray should be minimum and the sum should be maximum and it must be in non-increasing order.
Examples: 
 

Input: arr = [7, 6, 13, 12, 11] 
Output: 13 12 
Explanation: 
The subarray [13, 12] and [13, 11] are minimal such that the sum of their elements is strictly greater than the rest of the elements. However the subarray [13, 12] has the maximum total sum of its elements and hence it is returned in non-increasing order.
Input: arr = [8] 
Output:
 

 

Approach: 
 

  1. Initially we will sort the array arr and define a vector named A. Now we will first calculate the sum of whole array and then iterate the whole loop from the rear side while updating the temp consecutively. The loop runs until temp becomes zero. 
     
  2. Actually what happens while iterating the loop from the rear side is that when we iterate the loop from the rear side we are considering the maximum values. Hence we can say that we can reach the target condition in a lesser amount of time and also by taking fewer variables.
     
  3. Now as loop runs we keep on updating the value of temp by just adding nums[i] to it and also adding nums[i] to the vector A. At last we return the vector A which represents the output result what we want.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 



C++




// C++ program to find the Minimum size Subarray
// with maximum sum in non-increasing order
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find the Minimum size Subarray
void minSet(vector<int>& nums)
{
 
    vector<int> A;
 
    // sort numbers in descending order
    sort(nums.begin(), nums.end());
 
    // get total sum of the given array.
    int sum = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < nums.size(); i++)
        sum += nums[i];
 
    int temp = 0;
 
    // Loop until the sum of numbers
    // is greater than sum/2
    for (int i = nums.size() - 1;
         i >= 0 && temp <= sum / 2;
         i--) {
 
        A.push_back(nums[i]);
        temp += nums[i];
    }
 
    // Print the Minimum size Subarray
    for (int i = 0; i < A.size(); i++)
        cout << A[i] << " ";
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    vector<int> vec
        = { 7, 6, 13, 13, 12, 11 };
 
    minSet(vec);
 
    return 0;
}

    ArrayList<Integer> A = new ArrayList<Integer> ();
 
    // sort numbers in descending order
    Collections.sort(nums);
 
    // get total sum of the given array.
    int sum = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i<nums.size(); i++)
      sum += nums.get(i);
 
    int temp = 0;
 
    // Loop until the sum of numbers
    // is greater than sum/2
    for (int i = nums.size() - 1
      i >= 0 && temp<= sum / 2;
      i--) {
 
      A.add(nums.get(i));
      temp += nums.get(i);
    }
 
    // Print the Minimum size Subarray
    for (int i = 0; i<A.size(); i++)
      System.out.print(A.get(i) + " ");
  }

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    ArrayList<Integer> gfg = new ArrayList<Integer> ();
    gfg.add(7);
    gfg.add(6);
    gfg.add(13);
    gfg.add(13);
    gfg.add(12);
    gfg.add(11);
 
    // Function calling
    minSet(gfg);
