Number of pairs in an array such that product is greater than sum
  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 30 Apr, 2021

Given a array a[] of non-negative integers. Count the number of pairs (i, j) in the array such that a[i] + a[j] < a[i]*a[j]. (the pair (i, j) and (j, i) are considered same and i should not be equal to j)
Examples: 
 

Input : a[] = {3, 4, 5}
Output : 3
Pairs are (3, 4) , (4, 5) and (3,5)

Input  : a[] = {1, 1, 1}
Output : 0

 

Naive approach 
For each value a[i] count the number of a[j] (i > j) such that a[i]*a[j] > a[i] + a[j] 
 

C++




// Naive C++ program to count number of pairs
// such that their sum is more than product.
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Returns the number of valid pairs
int countPairs (int arr[], int n)
{   
    int ans = 0;  // initializing answer
 
    // Traversing the array. For each array
    // element, checking its predecessors that
    // follow the condition
    for (int i = 0; i<n; i++)
        for (int j = i-1; j>= 0; j--)
            if (arr[i]*arr[j] > arr[i] + arr[j])
                ans++;
    return ans;
}
 
// Driver function
int main()
{
    int arr[] = {3, 4, 5};
    int n = sizeof(arr)/sizeof(arr[0]);
    cout << countPairs(arr, n);
    return 0;
}

Efficient approach 
When a[i] = 0 : a[i]*a[j] = 0 and a[i] + a[j] >= 0 so if a[i] = 0 no pairs can be found. 
When a[i] = 1 : a[i]*a[j] = a[j] and a[i] + a[j] = 1 + a[j], so no pairs can be found when a[i] = 1 
When a[i] = 2 and a[j] = 2 : a[i]*a[j] = a[i] + a[j] = 4 
When a[i] = 2 and a[j] > 2 or a[i] > 2 and a[j] >= 2 : All such pairs are valid.
To solve this problem, count the number of 2s in the array say twoCount. Count the numbers greater than 2 in the array say twoGreaterCount. Answer will be twoCount * twoGreaterCount + twoGreaterCount * (twoGreaterCount-1)/2
