# Count elements such that there are exactly X elements with values greater than or equal to X in C++

We are given with an array of integers. The goal is to find the count of elements in the array that satisfy the following condition −

For each element the count of numbers greater than or equal to it present in the array should be exactly equal to it. Excluding the element itself. If element is X then array has exactly X numbers which are greater or equal to X. (Excluding the element).

## Input

Arr[]= { 0,1,2,3,4,9,8 }

## Output

Elements exactly greater than equal to itself : 1

Explanation − Elements and numbers >= to it −

Arr: 6 elements are >= 0 , 6!=0 count=0
Arr: 5 elements are >= 1 , 5!=1 count=0
Arr: 4 elements are >= 2 , 4!=2 count=0
Arr: 3 elements are >= 3 , 3==3 count=1
Arr: 2 elements are >= 4 , 2!=4 count=1
Arr: 0 elements are >= 9 , 0!=9 count=1
Arr: 1 element is >= 8 , 1!=8 count=1

3 is the only element such that exactly 3 elements are >= to it (4,8,9)

## Input

Arr[]= { 1,1,1,1,1 }

## Output

Elements exactly greater than equal to itself : 0

Explanation − All elements are equal and count !=1

## Approach used in the below program is as follows

• The integer array Arr[] is used to store the integers.

• Integer ‘n’ stores the length of the array.

• Function findcount(int arr[],int n) takes an array and its size as input and returns the count of numbers like X explained earlier.

• Variable count is used to store the count of numbers like X.

• Initialize ans=0, which will count such numbers.

• Traverse the array starting from the first element( index=0 ) using for loop.

• Inside for loop traverse from the starting element again, if any arr[j]>=arr[j] such that i!=j, increment the count.

• After the end of j loop, compare count with arr[i]. If count==arr[i] (exactly arr[i] elements are >=arr[i], increment the answer ‘ans’

• After the end of both for loops return the result present in ‘ans’.

## Example

Live Demo

#include <iostream>
#include <algorithm>
using namespace std;
int findcount(int arr[],int n){
sort(arr,arr+n);
int count=0;
int ans=0;
for(int i=0;i<n;i++){
count=0;
for(int j=0;j<n;j++){
if(arr[j]>=arr[i] && i!=j)
count++;
}
if(count==arr[i])
ans++;
}
return ans;
}
int main(){
int Arr[]= { 0,1,2,3,4,5,6 };
int k=7;
int n=sizeof(Arr)/sizeof(Arr);
std::cout<<"Elements exactly greater than equal to itself : "<<findcount(Arr,n);
return 0;
}

## Output

Elements exactly greater than equal to itself : 1
