﻿ C : Find the maximum repeating number in a given array

# C Exercises: Find the maximum repeating number in a given array

## C Array: Exercise-81 with Solution

Write a program in C to find the maximum repeating number in a given array. The array range is [0..n-1] and the elements are in the range [0..k-1] and k<=n.

Sample Solution:

C Code:

``````#include <stdio.h>

// Function to find the number with maximum repetition
int numToRepeatMax(int* arr1 , int n, int k) {
int mx = arr1[0], result = 0;

// Adjusting the elements in the array to identify the maximum repeating element
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
arr1[arr1[i] % k] += k;

// Finding the number with the maximum repetition
for (int i = 1; i < n; i++) {
if (arr1[i] > mx) {
mx = arr1[i];
result = i;
}
}

return result;
}

int main() {
int arr1[] = {2, 3, 3, 5, 3, 4, 1, 7, 7, 7, 7};
int n = sizeof(arr1) / sizeof(arr1[0]);
int i;

// Printing the original array
printf("The given array is:  \n");
for (i = 0; i < n; i++) {
printf("%d  ", arr1[i]);
}
printf("\n");

int k = 8; // Given value 'k'
printf("The maximum repeating number is: %d", numToRepeatMax(arr1, n, k)); // Finding and printing the number with maximum repetition
return 0;
}
```
```

Sample Output:

```The given array is:
2  3  3  5  3  4  1  7  7  7  7
The maximum repeating number is: 7
```
