Given an array of N elements, print the elements in the same relative order as given by removing all the occurrences of elements except the last occurrence. 
Examples
 

Input: a[] = {1, 5, 5, 1, 6, 1} 
Output: 5 6 1 
Remove two integers 1, which are in the positions 1 and 4. Also, remove the integer 5, which is in the position 2. 
Hence the left array is {5, 6, 1}
Input: a[] = {2, 5, 5, 2} 
Output: 5 2 
 

 

Approach: 
 

  • Hash the last occurrence of every element.
  • Iterate in the array of N elements, if the element’s index is hashed, then print the array element.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ program to print the last occurrence
// of every element in relative order
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to print the last occurrence
// of every element in an array
void printLastOccurrence(int a[], int n)
{
 
    // used in hashing
    unordered_map<int, int> mp;
 
    // iterate and store the last index
    // of every element
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
        mp[a[i]] = i;
 
    // iterate and check for the last
    // occurrence of every element
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        if (mp[a[i]] == i)
            cout << a[i] << " ";
    }
}
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int a[] = { 1, 5, 5, 1, 6, 1 };
    int n = sizeof(a) / sizeof(a[0]);
    printLastOccurrence(a, n);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to print the
// last occurrence of every
// element in relative order
import java.util.*;
 
class GFG
{
     
    // Function to print the last
    // occurrence of every element
    // in an array
    public static void printLastOccurrence(int a[],
                                           int n)
    {
        HashMap<Integer,
                Integer> map = new HashMap<Integer,
                                           Integer>();
         
        // iterate and store the last
        // index of every element
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
            map.put(a[i], i);
             
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
        {
        if (map.get(a[i]) == i)
            System.out.print(a[i] +" ");
        }
    }
     
    // Driver Code
    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
        int a[] = { 1, 5, 5, 1, 6, 1 };
        int n = a.length;
        printLastOccurrence(a, n);
    }
}
