# Number of ordered pairs such that (Ai & Aj) = 0

Given an array A[] of n integers, find out the number of ordered pairs such that A_{i}&A_{j} is zero, where 0<=(i,j)<n. Consider (i, j) and (j, i) to be different.

**Constraints: **

1<=n<=10^{4}

1<=A_{i}<=10^{4}

Examples:

Input : A[] = {3, 4, 2} Output : 4 Explanation : The pairs are (3, 4) and (4, 2) which are counted as 2 as (4, 3) and (2, 4) are considered different. Input : A[]={5, 4, 1, 6} Output : 4 Explanation : (4, 1), (1, 4), (6, 1) and (1, 6) are the pairs

**Simple approach **: A simple approach is to check for all possible pairs and count the number of ordered pairs whose bitwise & returns 0.

Below is the implementation of above idea:

**Time Complexity:** O(n^{2})

**Efficient approach**: An efficient approach is to use Sum over Subsets Dynamic Programming method and count the number of ordered pairs. In the SOS DP we find out the pairs whose bitwise & returned 0. Here we need to count the number of pairs.

Some key observations are the constraints, the maximum that an array element can be is 10^{4}. Calculating the mask up to (1<<15) will give us our answer. Use hashing to count the occurrence of every element. If the last bit is OFF, then relating to SOS dp, we will have a base case since there is only one possibility of OFF bit.

dp[mask][0] = freq(mask)

If the last bit is set ON, then we will have the base case as:

dp[mask][0] = freq(mask) + freq(mask^1)

We add freq(mask^1) to add the other possibility of OFF bit.

**Iterate over N=15 bits, which is the maximum possible.**

Let’s consider the** i-th bit to be 0**, then no subset can differ from the mask in the i-th bit as it would mean that the numbers will have a 1 at i-th bit where the mask has a 0 which would mean that it is not a subset of the mask. Thus we conclude that the numbers now differ in the first (i-1) bits only. Hence,

DP(mask, i) = DP(mask, i-1)

Now the **second case, if the i-th bit is 1, ** it can be divided into two non-intersecting sets. One containing numbers with i-th bit as 1 and differing from mask in the next (i-1) bits. Second containing numbers with ith bit as 0 and differing from mask(2^{i}) in next (i-1) bits. Hence,

DP(mask, i) = DP(mask, i-1) + DP(mask2^{i}, i-1).

**DP[mask][i] **stores the number of subsets of mask which differ from mask only in first i bits. Iterate for all array elements, and for every array element add the number of subsets (dp[ ( ( 1<<N ) – 1 ) ^ a[i] ][ N ]) to the number of pairs. N = maximum number of bits.

**Explanation of addition of dp[ ( ( 1<<N ) – 1 ) ^ a[i] ][N] to the number of pairs: **Take an example of A[i] being 5, which is 101 in binary. For better understanding, assume N=3 in this case, therefore, the reverse of 101 will be 010 which on applying bitwise & gives 0. So (1<<3) gives 1000 which on subtraction from 1 gives 111. 111101 gives 010 which is the reversed bit.So dp[((1<<N)-1)^a[i]][N] will have the number of subsets that returns 0 on applying bitwise & operator.
