﻿ C : Find all contiguous subarray of size k within an array

# C Exercises: Find the maximum for each and every contigious subarray of size k from a given array

## C Array: Exercise-94 with Solution

Write a program in C to find the largest element of each and every contiguous subarray of size k from a given array.

Sample Solution:

C Code:

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

// Function to print the subarray from index x to x+(k-1)
void contSubArr(int arr1[], int x, int k)
{
for (int i = x; i <= x + (k - 1); i++)
{
printf("%d ", arr1[i]); // Print the elements of the subarray
}
}

// Function to find the maximum in each subarray of length k
void findMaxFrom(int arr1[], int n, int k)
{
int j, maxofn, m = 0;
for (int i = 0; i <= n - k; i++) // Loop through the array from start to n-k
{
maxofn = arr1[i]; // Set the first element of subarray as the initial maximum

for (j = 1; j < k; j++) // Loop within the subarray
{
if (arr1[i + j] > maxofn) // Update maximum if a larger element is found
maxofn = arr1[i + j];
}
contSubArr(arr1, m, k); // Print the subarray
printf("----> %d \n", maxofn); // Print the maximum value of the subarray
m++; // Move to the next subarray
}
}

int main()
{
int arr1[] = {1, 3, 6, 21, 4, 9, 12, 3, 16, 10};
int n = sizeof(arr1) / sizeof(arr1[0]);
int i, k = 4;

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

printf("The length of each subarray is: %d\n", k);
printf("The contiguous subarrays of length %d and their maximum value are: \n", k);
findMaxFrom(arr1, n, k); // Find and print max in subarrays of length k

return 0;
}
```
```

Sample Output:

```The given array is:
1  3  6  21  4  9  12  3  16  10
The length of each subarray is: 4
The contigious subarray of length 4 and their maximum value are:
1 3 6 21 ----> 21
3 6 21 4 ----> 21
6 21 4 9 ----> 21
21 4 9 12 ----> 21
4 9 12 3 ----> 12
9 12 3 16 ----> 16
12 3 16 10 ----> 16
```
