# Python Program for Reversal algorithm for array rotation

• Difficulty Level : Medium
• Last Updated : 22 Jun, 2022

Write a function rotate(arr[], d, n) that rotates arr[] of size n by d elements.

Example :

```Input :  arr[] = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]
d = 2
Output : arr[] = [3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1, 2]
```

Rotation of the above array by 2 will make array

## Recommended: Please solve it on “PRACTICE ” first, before moving on to the solution.

Output :

`3 4 5 6 7 1 2`

Time Complexity : O(n)
Auxiliary Space : O(1)
