# Minimum Size Subarray Sum in C++

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have an array of n elements, and a positive integer s. We have to find the minimal length of a contiguous subarray, of which the sum is greater or equal to s. If there isn’t one,then return 0 instead. So if the array is like [2,3,1,2,3,4] and sum is 7, then the output will be 2. This is the subarray [4,3] has the minimum length for this case.

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

• ans := 0, n := size of array A, j := 0 and sum := 0

• for i in range 0 to n – 1

• sum := sum + A[i]

• while sum – A[i] >= K and j <= 1

• sum := sum – A[j]

• increase j by 1

• if sum >= k, then

• if ans = 0 or ans > (i – j + 1), then ans := (i – j + 1)

• return ans

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

## Example

Live Demo

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
class Solution {
public:
int minSubArrayLen(int K, vector<int>& A) {
int ans = 0;
int n = A.size();
int j = 0;
int sum = 0;
for(int i = 0; i < n; i++){
sum += A[i];
while(sum - A[j] >= K && j <= i){
sum -= A[j];
j++;
}
if(sum >= K){
if(ans == 0 || ans > (i - j + 1)) ans = (i - j + 1);
}
}
return ans;
}
};
main(){
vector<int> v = {2,3,1,2,4,3};
Solution ob;
cout << ((ob.minSubArrayLen(7,v)));
}

## Input

7
[2,3,1,2,4,3]

## Output

2
