Remove elements from the array whose frequency lies in the range [l, r]

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 28 May, 2021

Given an array of integers, remove the elements from the array whose frequency lies in the range [l, r].

Examples:

Input : arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 3, 2, 2, 5 } 
l = 2, r = 3 
Output : 1 5 
We remove all those elements with frequencies from 2 to 5.

Input : arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3 } 
l = 2, r = 3 
Output : 3 3 3 3



Approach :  

  • Take a hash map, which will store the frequency of all the elements in the array.
  • Now, traverse once again.
  • Remove the elements whose frequency lies between [l, r].
  • Else, print it.

C++




// C++ program to remove the elements whose
// frequency appears in the range [l, r]
#include "iostream"
#include "unordered_map"
using namespace std;
 
void removeElements(int arr[], int n, int l, int r)
{
    // Hash map which will store the
    // frequency of the elements of the array.
    unordered_map<int, int> mp;
 
    for (int i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
 
        // Incrementing the frequency
        // of the element by 1.
        mp[arr[i]]++;
    }
 
    for (int i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
 
        // Print the element whose frequency
        // is not in the range [l, r]
        if (mp[arr[i]] < l or mp[arr[i] > r]) {
            cout << arr[i] << " ";
        }
    }
}
 
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 3, 2, 2, 5 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
    int l = 2, r = 3;
    removeElements(arr, n, l, r);
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to remove the elements whose
// frequency appears in the range [l, r]
import java.util.HashMap;
 
class GFG {
 
    static void removeElements(int arr[], int n, int l, int r)
    {
        // Hash map which will store the
        // frequency of the elements of the array.
        HashMap<Integer, Integer> mp = new HashMap<>();
 
        for (int i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
 
            // Incrementing the frequency
            // of the element by 1.
            // mp[arr[i]]++;
            int val = 0;
            if (mp.get(arr[i]) == null) {
                val = 1;
            }
            else {
                val = mp.get(arr[i]) + 1;
            }
            // System.out.println("--"+mp.get(arr[i]));
            mp.put(arr[i], val);
        }
 
        for (int i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
 
            // Print the element whose frequency
            // is not in the range [l, r]
            if (mp.get(arr[i]) < l || mp.get(arr[i]) > r) {
                System.out.print(arr[i] + " ");
            }
        }
    }
 
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        int arr[] = { 1, 2, 3, 3, 2, 2, 5 };
        int n = arr.length;
        int l = 2, r = 3;
        removeElements(arr, n, l, r);
    }
}
