Given an array of size n and a number k. We must modify array K a number of times. Here modify array means in each operation we can replace any array element arr[i] by -arr[i]. We need to perform this operation in such a way that after K operations, the sum of the array must be maximum?

Examples : 

Input : arr[] = {-2, 0, 5, -1, 2}, K = 4
Output: 10
Explanation:
1. Replace (-2) by -(-2), array becomes {2, 0, 5, -1, 2}
2. Replace (-1) by -(-1), array becomes {2, 0, 5, 1, 2}
3. Replace (0) by -(0), array becomes {2, 0, 5, 1, 2}
4. Replace (0) by -(0), array becomes {2, 0, 5, 1, 2}

Input : arr[] = {9, 8, 8, 5}, K = 3
Output: 20

Naive approach: This problem has a very simple solution, we just have to replace the minimum element arr[i] in the array by -arr[i] for the current operation. In this way, we can make sum of the array maximum after K operations. One interesting case is, that once the minimum element becomes 0, we don’t need to make any more changes. 

Implementation:

C++




// C++ program to maximize array sum after
// k operations.
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// This function does k operations on array in a way that
// maximize the array sum. index --> stores the index of
// current minimum element for j'th operation
int maximumSum(int arr[], int n, int k)
{
    // Modify array K number of times
    for (int i = 1; i <= k; i++) {
        int min = INT_MAX;
        int index = -1;
 
        // Find minimum element in array for current
        // operation and modify it i.e; arr[j] --> -arr[j]
        for (int j = 0; j < n; j++) {
            if (arr[j] < min) {
                min = arr[j];
                index = j;
            }
        }
 
        // this the condition if we find 0 as minimum
        // element, so it will useless to replace 0 by -(0)
        // for remaining operations
        if (min == 0)
            break;
 
        // Modify element of array
        arr[index] = -arr[index];
    }
 
    // Calculate sum of array
    int sum = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
        sum += arr[i];
    return sum;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { -2, 0, 5, -1, 2 };
    int k = 4;
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
    cout << maximumSum(arr, n, k);
    return 0;
}

Approach 2 (Using Sort):  When there is a need to negate at most k elements.

Follow the steps below to solve this problem:

  1. Sort the given array arr.
  2. Then for a given value of k, Iterate through the array till k remains greater than 0, If the value of the array at any index is less than 0 we will change its sign and decrement k by 1.
  3. If we find a 0 in the array we will immediately set k equal to 0 to maximize our result.
  4. In some cases, if we have all the values in an array greater than 0 we will change the sign of positive values, as our array is already sorted we will be changing signs of lower values present in the array which will eventually maximize our sum.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ program to find maximum array sum after at most k
// negations.
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
 
using namespace std;
 
int sol(int arr[], int n, int k)
{
    int sum = 0;
    int i = 0;
 
    // Sorting given array using in-built sort function
    sort(arr, arr + n);
    while (k > 0) {
        // If we find a 0 in our sorted array, we stop
        if (arr[i] >= 0)
            k = 0;
        else {
            arr[i] = (-1) * arr[i];
            k = k - 1;
        }
        i++;
    }
 
    // Calculating sum
    for (int j = 0; j < n; j++)
        sum += arr[j];
    return sum;
}
 
// Driver code

{
    int arr[] = { -2, 0, 5, -1, 2 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
    cout << sol(arr, n, 4) << endl;

Approach 3(Using Sort):

The above approach 2 is optimal when there is a need to negate at most k elements. To solve when there are exactly k negations the algorithm is given below.

  1. Sort the array in ascending order. Initialize i = 0.
  2. Increment i and multiply all negative elements by -1 till k becomes or a positive element is reached.
  3. Check if the end of the array has occurred. If true then go to (n-1)th element.
  4. If k ==0 or k is even, return the sum of all elements. Else multiply the absolute of minimum of ith or (i-1) th element by -1.
  5. Return sum of the array.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ program for the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to calculate sum of the array
long long int sumArray(long long int* arr, int n)

        sum += arr[i];
    return sum;
}
 
// Function to maximize sum
long long int maximizeSum(long long int arr[], int n, int k)
{
    sort(arr, arr + n);
    int i = 0;
 
    // Iterate from 0 to n - 1
    for (i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        if (k && arr[i] < 0) {
            arr[i] *= -1;
            k--;
            continue;
        }
        break;
    }
