Missing vertex among N axis-parallel rectangles

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 11 Sep, 2020
Geek Week

Given N axis-parallel rectangles in a 2-D Cartesian coordinate system and coordinates of 4N-1 vertices, the task is to find the single vertex missing. Examples: 
 

Input: N = 2, V[][] = {{1, 1}, {1, 2}, {4, 6}, {2, 1}, {9, 6}, {9, 3}, {4, 3} 
Output: {2, 2} 
Explanation: 
The coordinates forming an axis parallel rectangle are {4, 6}, {9, 6}, {4, 3}, {9, 3}. 
For the remaining coordinates to form a rectangle {1, 1}, {1, 2}, {2, 1}, the missing coordinate is {2, 2}
Input: N = 3, V[][] = {{3, 8}, {0, 0}, {4, 6}, {0, 2}, {9, 6}, {9, 3}, {4, 3}, {6, 4}, {1, 0}, {3, 4}, {6, 8}} 
Output: {1, 2}

Approach: 
Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

  • Store the frequencies x-coordinates and y-coordinates in a Map.
  • Iterate over the Map to find an element with odd frequency for both the co-ordinates.
  • Finally, print the x and y coordinate with odd frequency.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ Program to implement
// the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
void MissingPoint(vector<pair<int, int> > V,
                  int N)
{
    map<int, int> mp;
    for (int i = 0; i < V.size(); i++) {
        mp[V[i].first]++;
    }
 
    int x, y;
    for (auto it : mp) {
        if (it.second % 2 == 1) {
            x = it.first;
            break;
        }
    }
    mp.clear();
    for (int i = 0; i < V.size(); i++) {
        mp[V[i].second]++;
    }
 
    for (auto it : mp) {
        if (it.second % 2 == 1) {
            y = it.first;
            break;
        }
    }
 
    cout << x << " " << y;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
 
    // Number of rectangles
    int N = 2;
 
    // Stores the coordinates
    vector<pair<int, int> > V;
 
    // Insert the coordinates
    V.push_back({ 1, 1 });
    V.push_back({ 1, 2 });
    V.push_back({ 4, 6 });
    V.push_back({ 2, 1 });
    V.push_back({ 9, 6 });
    V.push_back({ 9, 3 });
    V.push_back({ 4, 3 });
 
    MissingPoint(V, N);
 
    return 0;
}
