C++ program to find number of groups can be formed from set of programmers

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have an array A with n elements. The A[i] represents the programming skill of ith student. All elements in A are distinct. We want to split them into teams in such a way that −

  • No two students i and j, such that |A[i] - A[j]| = 1 belong to the same team

  • The number of teams is the minimum possible.

So, if the input is like A = [2, 3, 4, 99, 100], then the output will be 2, because the groups are [2, 3, 4] and [99, 100]

Steps

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

dem := 1
sort the array A
for initialize i := 1, when i < size of A, update (increase i by 1), do:
   if A[i] - A[i - 1] is same as 1, then:
      dem := 2
   return dem

Example

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;

int solve(vector<int> A) {
   int dem = 1;
   sort(A.begin(), A.end());
   for (int i = 1; i < A.size(); i++)
      if (A[i] - A[i - 1] == 1)
         dem = 2;
   return dem;
}
int main() {
   vector<int> A = { 2, 3, 4, 99, 100 };
   cout << solve(A) << endl;
}

Input

{ 2, 3, 4, 99, 100 }

Output

2
