# Find elements larger than half of the elements in an array

Given an array of n elements, the task is to find the elements that are greater than half of elements in an array. In case of of odd elements, we need to print elements larger than floor(n/2) elements where n is total number of elements in array.

Examples :

```Input :  arr[] = {1, 6, 3, 4}
Output : 4 6

Input  :  arr[] = {10, 4, 2, 8, 9}
Output :  10 9 8
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

A naive approach is to take an element and compare with all other elements and if it is greater then increment the count and then check if count is greater than n/2 elements then print.

An efficient method is to sort the array in ascending order and then print last ceil(n/2) elements from sorted array.

Below is C++ implementation of this sorting based approach.

## C/C++

 `// C++ program to find elements that are larger than ` `// half of the elements in array ` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// Prints elements larger than n/2 element ` `void` `findLarger(``int` `arr[], ``int` `n) ` `{ ` `    ``// Sort the array in ascending order ` `    ``sort(arr, arr + n); ` ` `  `    ``// Print last ceil(n/2) elements ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = n-1; i >= n/2; i--) ` `        ``cout << arr[i] << ``" "``;     ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver program  ` `int` `main()  ` `{ ` `    ``int` `arr[] = {1, 3, 6, 1, 0, 9}; ` `    ``int` `n = ``sizeof``(arr)/``sizeof``(arr); ` `    ``findLarger(arr, n); ` `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

## Java

 `// Java program to find elements that are  ` `// larger than half of the elements in array ` `import` `java.util.*; ` ` `  `class` `Gfg ` `{ ` `    ``// Prints elements larger than n/2 element ` `    ``static` `void` `findLarger(``int` `arr[], ``int` `n) ` `    ``{ ` `        ``// Sort the array in ascending order ` `        ``Arrays.sort(arr); ` `      `  `        ``// Print last ceil(n/2) elements ` `        ``for` `(``int` `i = n-``1``; i >= n/``2``; i--) ` `            ``System.out.print(arr[i] + ``" "``);   ` `    ``} ` `      `  `    ``// Driver program  ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args)  ` `    ``{ ` `        ``int` `arr[] = {``1``, ``3``, ``6``, ``1``, ``0``, ``9``}; ` `        ``int` `n = arr.length; ` `        ``findLarger(arr, n); ` `    ``}     ` `} ` ` `  `// This code is contributed by Raghav Sharma `

Output :

```9 6 3
