Suppose we have a list of fractions where each fraction is individual lists [numerator, denominator] which represents the number (numerator / denominator). We have to find the number of pairs of fractions whose sum is 1.

So, if the input is like fractions = [[2, 7],[3, 12],[4, 14],[5, 7],[3, 4],[1, 4]], then the output will be 4, as (2/7 + 5/7), (3/12 + 3/4), (3/4 + 1/4), (4/14 + 5/7) are the four pairs which sum to 1.

To solve this, we will follow these steps:

- d := a new map
- ans := 0
- for each fraction i in fractions, do
- x := i[numerator]
- y := i[denominator]
- g := gcd of (x, y)
- x := x / g
- y := y / g
- temp_x := y - x
- temp_y := y
- if (temp_x, temp_y) is in d, then
- ans := ans + d[temp_x, temp_y]

- d[x, y] := 1 + (d[(x, y)] when it is available, otherwise 0)

- return ans

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding:

class Solution: def solve(self, fractions): import math d = {} ans = 0 for i in fractions: x = i[0] y = i[1] g = math.gcd(x, y) x /= g y /= g temp_x = y - x temp_y = y if (temp_x, temp_y) in d: ans += d[(temp_x, temp_y)] d[(x, y)] = d.get((x, y), 0) + 1 return ans ob = Solution() fractions = [[2, 7],[3, 12],[4, 14],[5, 7],[3, 4],[1, 4]] print(ob.solve(fractions))

[[2, 7],[3, 12],[4, 14],[5, 7],[3, 4],[1, 4]]
