# Program to find sum of all odd length subarrays in Python

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have an array of positive values called nums, we have to find the sum of all possible odd-length subarrays. As we know a subarray is a contiguous subsequence of the array. We have to find the sum of all odd-length subarrays of nums.

So, if the input is like nums = [3,8,2,5,7], then the output will be The odd-length subarrays are −

nums = 3
nums = 8
nums = 2
nums = 5
nums = 7
nums[0..2], so sum = 13
nums[1..3], so sum = 15
nums[2..4], so sum = 14
nums[0..4] = 25
So total sum is 3+8+2+5+7+13+15+14+25 = 92

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

• total:= 0

• idx:= 0

• l:= a list of all odd placed indices

• while idx < size of l, do

• k:= l[idx]

• for i in range 0 to size of nums, do

• if i+k < size of nums + 1, then

• total := total + sum of all elements in nums from index i to i+k-1

• idx := idx + 1

## Example (Python)

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

def solve(nums):
total=0
idx=0
l=[i for i in range(len(nums)+1) if i%2!=0]

while(idx<len(l)):
k=l[idx]
for i in range(len(nums)):
if i+k < len(nums)+1:
total+=sum(nums[i:i+k])
idx+=1
print(solve(nums))
[3,8,2,5,7]
92
