Number of pairs from the first N natural numbers whose sum is divisible by K in C++

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Given numbers N and K, we have to count the number of pairs whose sum is divisible by K. Let's see an example.

Input

N = 3
K = 2

Output

1

There is only one pair whose sum is divisible by K. And the pair is (1, 3).

Algorithm

  • Initialise the N and K.
  • Generate the natural numbers till N and store them in an array.
  • Initialise the count to 0.
  • Write two loops to get all pairs from the array.
    • Compute the sum of every pair.
    • If the pair sum is divisible by K, 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 get2PowersCount(vector<int> arr, int N, int K) {
   int count = 0;
   for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) {
      for (int j = i + 1; j < N; j++) {
         int sum = arr[i] + arr[j];
         if (sum % K == 0) {
            count++;
         }
      }
   }
   return count;
}
int main() {
   vector<int> arr;
   int N = 10, K = 5;
   for (int i = 1; i <= N; i++) {
      arr.push_back(i);
   }
   cout << get2PowersCount(arr, N, K) << endl;
   return 0;
}

Output

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