# Sum of subsets of all the subsets of an array | O(3^N)

Given an array arr[] of length N, the task is to find the overall sum of subsets of all the subsets of the array.

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {1, 1}
Output: 6
All possible subsets:
a) {} : 0
All the possible subsets of this subset
will be {}, Sum = 0
b) {1} : 1
All the possible subsets of this subset
will be {} and {1}, Sum = 0 + 1 = 1
c) {1} : 1
All the possible subsets of this subset
will be {} and {1}, Sum = 0 + 1 = 1
d) {1, 1} : 4
All the possible subsets of this subset
will be {}, {1}, {1} and {1, 1}, Sum = 0 + 1 + 1 + 2 = 4
Thus, ans = 0 + 1 + 1 + 4 = 6

Input: arr[] = {1, 4, 2, 12}
Output: 513

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach: In this article, an approach with O(3N) time complexity to solve the given problem will be discussed.
First, generate all the possible subsets of the array. There will be 2N subsets in total. Then for each subset, find the sum of all of its subset.
Now, let’s understand the time-complexity of this solution.
There are NCk subsets of length K and time to find the subsets of an array of length K is 2K.
Total time = (NC1 * 21) + (NC2 * 22) + … + (NCk * K) = 3K

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++
