# Queries for number of elements on right and left

Given Q queries of three types where every query consists of a number.

- Add element
on the left*num* - Add element
on the right*num* - Print the number of elements to the right an left of the given element
.*num*

The task is to write a program that performs the above queries.

**Note:** Elements in queries 1 and 2 are distinct and 0 <= num <= 10^{5}.

**Examples:**

Input:

Q = 5

Query of type 1: num = 3

Query of type 2: num = 5

Query of type 1: num = 2

Query of type 1: num = 4

Query of type 3: num = 3

Output:element on the right: 1 element on the left: 2After query 1, the element positioning is 3

After query 2, the element positioning is 35

After query 3, the element positioning is 235

After query 4, the element positioning is 4235

So there is 1 element to the right and 2 elements on the left of 3 when

query 3 is called.

The following steps can be followed to solve the above problem.

- Initialize a variable
**left**and**right**as 0, and two hash arrays**position[]**and**mark[]**. position[] is used to store the index of num on left and right and mark[] is used to mark if the num is on left or right. - For
**query-1,**increase the count of left, and mark position[num] as left and mark[num] as 1. - For
**query-2,**increase the count of right, and mark position[num] as right and mark[num] as 2 - For
**query-3,**check if the given number is present on right or left using mark[]. - If the number is present on right, then the number of elements to the left of num will be
**(left-position[num])**, and the number of elements to the right of num will be**(position[num] – 1 + right)**. - If the number is present on left, then the number of elements to the right of num will be
**(right-position[num])**, and the number of elements to the left of num will be**(position[num] – 1 + *left)**.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

`// C++ program to print the number of elements ` `// on right and left of a given element ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` `#define MAXN 100005 ` ` ` `// function to perform query 1 ` `void` `performQueryOne(` `int` `num, ` `int` `* left, ` `int` `* right, ` ` ` `int` `* position, ` `int` `* mark) ` `{ ` ` ` `// count number of elements on left ` ` ` `*left = *left + 1; ` ` ` ` ` `// store the index number ` ` ` `position[num] = *(left); ` ` ` ` ` `// mark the element is on left ` ` ` `mark[num] = 1; ` `} ` ` ` `// function to perform query 2 ` `void` `performQueryTwo(` `int` `num, ` `int` `* left, ` `int` `* right, ` ` ` `int` `* position, ` `int` `* mark) ` `{ ` ` ` `// count number of elements on right ` ` ` `*right = *right + 1; ` ` ` ` ` `// store the index number ` ` ` `position[num] = *(right); ` ` ` ` ` `// mark the element is on right ` ` ` `mark[num] = 2; ` `} ` ` ` `// function to perform query 3 ` `void` `performQueryThree(` `int` `num, ` `int` `* left, ` `int` `* right, ` ` ` `int` `* position, ` `int` `* mark) ` `{ ` ` ` `int` `toright, toleft; ` ` ` ` ` `// if the element is on right ` ` ` `if` `(mark[num] == 2) { ` ` ` `toright = *right - position[num]; ` ` ` `toleft = position[num] - 1 + *left; ` ` ` `} ` ` ` ` ` `// if the element is on left ` ` ` `else` `if` `(mark[num] == 1) { ` ` ` `toleft = *left - position[num]; ` ` ` `toright = position[num] - 1 + *right; ` ` ` `} ` ` ` ` ` `// not present ` ` ` `else` `{ ` ` ` `cout << ` `"The number is not there\n"` `; ` ` ` `return` `; ` ` ` `} ` ` ` ` ` `cout << ` `"The number of elements to right of "` ` ` `<< num << ` `": "` `<< toright; ` ` ` ` ` `cout << ` `"\nThe number of elements to left of "` ` ` `<< num << ` `": "` `<< toleft; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver Code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` ` ` `int` `left = 0, right = 0; ` ` ` ` ` `// hashing arrays ` ` ` `int` `position[MAXN] = { 0 }; ` ` ` `int` `mark[MAXN] = { 0 }; ` ` ` ` ` `int` `num = 3; ` ` ` ` ` `// query type-1 ` ` ` `performQueryOne(num, &left, &right, position, mark); ` ` ` ` ` `// query type-2 ` ` ` `num = 5; ` ` ` `performQueryTwo(num, &left, &right, position, mark); ` ` ` ` ` `// query type-2 ` ` ` `num = 2; ` ` ` `performQueryOne(num, &left, &right, position, mark); ` ` ` ` ` `// query type-2 ` ` ` `num = 4; ` ` ` `performQueryOne(num, &left, &right, position, mark); ` ` ` ` ` `// query type-3 ` ` ` `num = 3; ` ` ` `performQueryThree(num, &left, &right, position, mark); ` ` ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |

**Time Complexity:** O(1) for every query.

**Auxiliary Space:** O(MAXN), where MAXN is 10^{5}.
