Online Queries for GCD of array after divide operations
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 26 Jul, 2019

You are given an array of N integer values and M update operations. An update consists of choosing an element of the array and dividing it by a given value. It is guaranteed that the element is divisible by the chosen value. After each update, you should compute the greatest common divisor of all the elements of the array.

Examples:

Input : 3 3
        36 24 72
        1 3
        3 12
        2 4
Output :12
        6
        6
After each operation the array values will be:
1. 12, 24, 72
2. 12, 24, 6
3. 12, 6, 6

Input :5 6
       100 150 200 600 300
       4 6
       2 3
       4 4
       1 4
       2 5
       5 25
Output : 50
         50
         25
         25
         5
         1

Approach
First, you should compute the Greatest Common Divisor(gcd) of all the initial numbers. Because the queries consist of dividing a number to one of its divisors it means the after each query the new gcd is a divisor of the old gcd. So for each query, you should simply compute the gcd between the updated value and the previous gcd.

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
void print_gcd_online(int n, int m,
                      int query[][2], int arr[])
{
    // stores the gcd of the initial array elements
    int max_gcd = 0;
    int i = 0;
  
    // calculates the gcd
    for (i = 0; i < n; i++)
        max_gcd = __gcd(max_gcd, arr[i]);
  
    // performing online queries
    for (i = 0; i < m; i++)
    {
        // index is 1 based
        query[i][0]--;
  
        // divide the array element
        arr[query[i][0]] /= query[i][1];
  
        // calculates the current gcd
        max_gcd = __gcd(arr[query[i][0]], max_gcd);
  
        // print the gcd after each step
        cout << max_gcd << endl;

    query[2][1] = 4;
