Number of ways to select exactly K even numbers from given Array
  • Last Updated : 28 Apr, 2021

Given an array arr[] of n integers and an integer K, the task is to find the number of ways to select exactly K even numbers from the given array.

Examples: 

Input: arr[] = {1, 2, 3, 4} k = 1 
Output:
Explanation:
The number of ways in which we can select one even number is 2.

Input: arr[] = {61, 65, 99, 26, 57, 68, 23, 2, 32, 30}  k = 2
Output:10
Explanation:
The number of ways in which we can select 2 even number is 10.

Approach:  The idea is to apply the rule of combinatorics. For choosing r objects from the given n objects, the total number of ways of choosing is given by nCr. Below are the steps:



  1. Count the total number of even elements from the given array(say cnt).
  2. Check if the value of K is greater than cnt then the number of ways will be equal to 0.
  3. Otherwise, the answer will be nCk.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ program for the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
long long f[12];
 
// Function for calculating factorial
void fact()
{
    // Factorial of n defined as:
    // n! = n * (n - 1) * ... * 1
    f[0] = f[1] = 1;
 
    for (int i = 2; i <= 10; i++)
        f[i] = i * 1LL * f[i - 1];
}
 
// Function to find the number of ways to
// select exactly K even numbers
// from the given array
void solve(int arr[], int n, int k)
{
    fact();
 
    // Count even numbers
    int even = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
 
        // Check if the current
        // number is even
        if (arr[i] % 2 == 0)
            even++;
    }
 
    // Check if the even numbers to be
    // choosen is greater than n. Then,
    // there is no way to pick it.
    if (k > even)
        cout << 0 << endl;
 
    else {
        // The number of ways will be nCk
        cout << f[even] / (f[k] * f[even - k]);
    }
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    // Given array arr[]
    int arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4 };
    int n = sizeof arr / sizeof arr[0];
 
    // Given count of even elements
    int k = 1;
 
    // Function Call
    solve(arr, n, k);
    return 0;
}

    f[0] = f[1] = 1;
 
    for(int i = 2; i <= 10; i++)
        f[i] = i * 1 * f[i - 1];
}
 
// Function to find the number of ways to
// select exactly K even numbers
// from the given array
static void solve(int arr[], int n, int k)

    fact();
 
    // Count even numbers
    int even = 0;
    for(int i = 0; i < n; i++)

        // Check if the current
        // number is even

            even++;
    }
 
    // Check if the even numbers to be
    // choosen is greater than n. Then,
    // there is no way to pick it.
    if (k > even)
        System.out.print(0 + "\n");
 
    else
    {
        // The number of ways will be nCk
        System.out.print(f[even] /
                        (f[k] * f[even - k]));
    }
}
 
// Driver Code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
     
    // Given array arr[]
    int arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4 };
    int n = arr.length;
 
    // Given count of even elements
