Number of non-negative integral solutions of sum equation in C++

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

In this tutorial, we are going to write a program that finds the number non-negative integral solution of sum equation.

The sum equation is x + y + z = n. You are given the number n, you need to find the number of solutions for the equation. Let's see an example.

Input

2

Output

6

Solutions are

0 0 2
0 1 1
0 2 0
1 0 1
1 1 0
2 0 0

Algorithm

  • Initialise the number m.

  • Initialise the count to 0.

  • Write three nested loops to get all the combinations of three numbers.

    • Check the validation of the equation.

    • If the current numbers satisfies the equation, then increment the count.

  • Return the count.

Implementation

Following is the implementation of the above algorithm in C++

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
int getEquationSolutionCount(int n) {
   int count = 0;
   for (int i = 0; i <= n; i++) {
      for (int j = 0; j <= n - i; j++) {
         for (int k = 0; k <= n - i - j; k++) {
            if (i + j + k == n) {
               count++;
            }
         }
      }
   }
   return count;
}
int main() {
   int n = 10;
   cout << getEquationSolutionCount(n) << endl;
   return 0;
}

Output

If you run the above code, then you will get the following result.
