Sort the Array by reversing the numbers in it

  • Last Updated : 29 Nov, 2021

Given an array arr[] of N non-negative integers, the task is to sort these integers according to their reverse.

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {12, 10, 102, 31, 15} 
Output: 10 31 12 15 102 
Reversing the numbers: 
12 -> 21 
10 -> 01 
102 -> 201 
31 -> 13 
15 -> 51 
Sorting the reversed numbers: 01 13 21 51 201 
Original sorted array: 10 13 12 15 102

Input: arr[] = {12, 10} 
Output: 10 12 

Approach: The idea is to store each element with its reverse in a vector pair and then sort all the elements of the vector according to the reverse stored. Finally, print the elements in order.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to return the
// reverse of n
int reversDigits(int num)
{
    int rev_num = 0;
    while (num > 0) {
        rev_num = rev_num * 10 + num % 10;
        num = num / 10;
    }
    return rev_num;
}
 
// Function to sort the array according to
// the reverse of elements
void sortArr(int arr[], int n)
{
    // Vector to store the reverse
    // with respective elements
    vector<pair<int, int> > vp;
 
    // Inserting reverse with elements
    // in the vector pair
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        vp.push_back(
            make_pair(reversDigits(arr[i]),
                      arr[i]));
    }
 
    // Sort the vector, this will sort the pair
    // according to the reverse of elements
    sort(vp.begin(), vp.end());
 
    // Print the sorted vector content
    for (int i = 0; i < vp.size(); i++)
        cout << vp[i].second << " ";
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 12, 10, 102, 31, 15 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
 
    sortArr(arr, n);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation of the approach
import java.util.*;
import java.lang.*;
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG{
     
// Function to return the
// reverse of n
static int reversDigits(int num)
{
    int rev_num = 0;
    while (num > 0)
    {
        rev_num = rev_num * 10 + num % 10;
        num = num / 10;
    }
    return rev_num;
}
   
// Function to sort the array according
// to the reverse of elements
static void sortArr(int arr[], int n)
{
     
    // Vector to store the reverse
    // with respective elements
    ArrayList<int[]> vp = new ArrayList<>();
   
    // Inserting reverse with elements
    // in the vector pair
    for(int i = 0; i < n; i++)
    {
        vp.add(new int[]{reversDigits(arr[i]),
                                      arr[i]});
    }
   
    // Sort the vector, this will sort the pair
    // according to the reverse of elements
    Collections.sort(vp, (a, b) -> a[0] - b[0]);
   
    // Print the sorted vector content
    for(int i = 0; i < vp.size(); i++)
        System.out.print(vp.get(i)[1] + " ");
}
  
// Driver code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    int arr[] = { 12, 10, 102, 31, 15 };
    int n = arr.length;
     
    sortArr(arr, n);
}
}

Output: 
10 31 12 15 102

 

Time Complexity: 

O(N*log N),    where N is the size of the array

Auxiliary Space: O(N)
