# Subarray of length K having concatenation of its elements divisible by X

• Last Updated : 01 Jun, 2021

Given an array arr[] consisting of N positive integers, the task is to find a subarray of length K such that concatenation of each element of the subarray is divisible by X. If no such subarray exists, then print “-1”. If more than one such subarray exists, print any one of them.

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {1, 2, 4, 5, 9, 6, 4, 3, 7, 8}, K = 4, X = 4
Output: 4 5 9 6
Explanation:
The elements of the subarray {4, 5, 9, 6} concatenates to form 4596, which is divisible by 4.

Input: arr[] = {2, 3, 5, 1, 3}, K = 3, X = 6
Output: -1

Naive Approach: The simplest approach to solve the problem is to generate all possible subarrays of length K and print that subarray whose concatenation of elements is divisible by X. If no such subarray exists, print “-1”. Otherwise, print any of these subarrays.

Time Complexity: O(N2)
Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Efficient Approach: The above approach can be optimized using the Sliding Window Technique. Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

1. Generate a number by concatenating the first K array elements. Store it in a variable, say num.
2. Check if the number generated is divisible by X or not. If found to be true, then print the current subarray.
3. Otherwise, traverse the array over the range [K, N] and for each element follow the steps below:
• Add the digits of the element arr[i] to the variable num.
• Remove the digits of the element arr[i – K] from the front of the num.
• Now check if the current number formed is divisible by X or not. If found to be true, then print the current subarray in the range [i – K, i].
• Otherwise, check for the next subarray.
4. If no such subarray exists, then print “-1”.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

 `// C++ program for the above approach` `#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to return the starting``// index of the subarray whose``// concatenation is divisible by X``int` `findSubarray(vector<``int``> arr,``                 ``int` `K, ``int` `X)``{``    ``int` `i, num = 0;` `    ``// Generate the concatenation``    ``// of first K length subarray``    ``for` `(i = 0; i < K; i++) {``        ``num = num * 10 + arr[i];``    ``}` `    ``// If num is divisible by X``    ``if` `(num % X == 0) {``        ``return` `0;``    ``}` `    ``// Traverse the remaining array``    ``for` `(``int` `j = i; j < arr.size(); j++) {` `        ``// Append the digits of arr[i]``        ``num = (num % (``int``)``pow``(10, j - 1))``                  ``* 10``              ``+ arr[j];` `        ``// If num is divisible by X``        ``if` `(num % X == 0) {``            ``return` `j - i + 1;``        ``}``    ``}` `    ``// No subarray exists``    ``return` `-1;``}` `// Function to print the subarray in``// the range [answer, answer + K]``void` `print(vector<``int``> arr, ``int` `answer,``           ``int` `K)``{``    ``// No such subarray exists``    ``if` `(answer == -1) {``        ``cout << answer;``    ``}` `    ``// Otherwise``    ``else` `{` `        ``// Print the subarray in the``        ``// range [answer, answer + K]``        ``for` `(``int` `i = answer;``             ``i < answer + K; i++) {``            ``cout << arr[i] << ``" "``;``        ``}``    ``}``}` `// Driver Code``int` `main()``{``    ``// Given array arr[]``    ``vector<``int``> arr = { 1, 2, 4, 5, 9,``                        ``6, 4, 3, 7, 8 };` `    ``int` `K = 4, X = 4;` `    ``// Function Call``    ``int` `answer = findSubarray(arr, K, X);` `    ``// Function Call to print subarray``    ``print(arr, answer, K);` `    ``return` `0;``}`
