Maximum possible middle element of the array after deleting exactly k elements in C++

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

In this tutorial, we will be discussing a program to find maximum possible middle element of the array after deleting exactly k elements

For this we will be provided with an array of size N and an integer K. Our task is to reduce K elements from the array such that the middle element of the resulting array is maximum.

Example

 Live Demo

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
//calculating maximum value of middle element
int maximum_middle_value(int n, int k, int arr[]) {
   int ans = -1;
   int low = (n + 1 - k) / 2;
   int high = (n + 1 - k) / 2 + k;
   for (int i = low; i <= high; i++) {
      ans = max(ans, arr[i - 1]);
   }
   return ans;
}
int main() {
   int n = 5, k = 2;
   int arr[] = { 9, 5, 3, 7, 10 };
   cout << maximum_middle_value(n, k, arr) << endl;
   n = 9;
   k = 3;
   int arr1[] = { 2, 4, 3, 9, 5, 8, 7, 6, 10 };
   cout << maximum_middle_value(n, k, arr1) << endl;
   return 0;
}
