# Minimal operations to make Array components 0 by decrementing pair or single factor

Given an array arr[] of measurement N, the duty is to seek out the minimal variety of operations required to scale back all three components of the array to zero. Following operations are allowed:

• Cut back 2 totally different array components by one.
• Cut back a single array factor by one.

#### Instance:

Enter: arr[] = {1, 2, 3}, N = 3
Output: 3
Rationalization : Operation 1: cut back 3 and a couple of to get {1, 1, 2}
Operation 2: reduuce 1 and a couple of to get {1, 0, 1}
Operation 3: cut back each 1s to get {0, 0, 0}

Enter: arr[] = {5, 1, 2, 9, 8}, N = 5
Output: 13

#### Strategy:

This drawback will be solved utilizing grasping strategy. The thought is to scale back the two largest components at a time or (if not doable) 1 at a time.  As we’d like the biggest components in every step, we will use a max heap.

The next steps will be taken to resolve this strategy:

• Provoke a depend variable as 0.
• Insert all the weather in a max heap.
• Cut back the 2 largest components.
• Insert the lowered values once more into the heap.
• Repeat above talked about steps till all array components change into zero and improve the depend at every iteration.
• Cease when all array components are zero.

Under is the implementation of the above strategy:

## Java

 `import` `java.util.*;`` ` `class` `GFG {`` ` `    ``public` `static` `int` `reduceArray(``int` `arr[], ``int` `N)``    ``{`` ` `        ``int` `depend = ``0``;``        ``PriorityQueue pq = ``new` `PriorityQueue<>();`` ` `        ``for` `(``int` `i = ``0``; i < N; i++) {``            ``pq.add(arr[i] * -``1``);``        ``}``        ``whereas` `(pq.measurement() > ``1``) {``            ``int` `temp1 = pq.ballot();``            ``int` `temp2 = pq.ballot();``            ``depend++;``            ``temp1++;``            ``temp2++;``            ``if` `(temp1 != ``0``)``                ``pq.add(temp1);``            ``if` `(temp2 != ``0``)``                ``pq.add(temp2);``        ``}``        ``if` `(pq.measurement() > ``0``)``            ``depend -= pq.ballot();``        ``return` `depend;``    ``}`` ` `    ``    ``public` `static` `void` `most important(String[] args)``    ``{``        ``int` `arr[] = { ``1``, ``2``, ``3` `};``        ``int` `N = ``3``;``        ``int` `depend = reduceArray(arr, N);``        ``System.out.println(depend);``    ``}``}`

Time Complexity: O(N * logN)
Auxiliary Area: O(N)
