# Minimal steps to succeed in finish by leaping to subsequent totally different bit as soon as

Given a binary array arr[] of dimension N which is ranging from index 0, the duty is to succeed in the top of the array within the minimal steps, motion inside the array might be achieved in 2 sorts of steps.

• Type1: Transfer to the quick subsequent index having the identical worth.
• Type2: Transfer to the quick subsequent index having a distinct worth.

Notice: Kind 2 can be utilized simply as soon as whereas traversing.

Examples:

Enter: arr[] = {1, 0, 1, 0, 1}
Output: 2
Rationalization: Ranging from index 0
First step: type1: 0->2
Second step: type1: 2->4

Enter: arr[] = {1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0}
Output: 3
Rationalization: Ranging from index 0
First step:  type1: 0->4
Second step: type1: 4->6
Third step: type2: 6->7

Strategy: The issue might be solved utilizing pre-computation approach primarily based on the next concept:

To determine, from which kind of transfer we should always proceed, easy examine that the primary and final parts are similar or not, if sure then merely proceed with sort 1 step in any other case discover an optimum place for switching with type2 stepping

Observe the steps to unravel the issue:

• If first and final are similar then transfer with type1 steps solely and we are able to straight print variety of steps by calculating variety of parts having similar worth excluding first.
• If first and final parts are of various worth then discover an optimum place for switching with type2 stepping.
• This may be achieved by pre-computation for switching in any respect potential indices.
• Use 2 arrays X and Y, X holding variety of steps from begin (i.e whole occurrences of arr from begin) whereas Y holding the variety of steps from finish (i.e. whole occurrences of arr[N-1] from the top).
• The place switching is feasible, examine the full steps required and replace the minimal steps accordingly.
• Return the minimal variety of steps required.

Beneath is the implementation for the above strategy:

## C++

 ` `  `#embrace ` `utilizing` `namespace` `std;` ` `  `int` `Minstep(``int` `arr[], ``int` `n)` `{` `    ` `    ``int` `c = arr, d = arr[n - 1];` ` `  `    ` `    ``int` `x[n + 1], y[n + 1];` `    ``x = 0;` `    ``y[n] = 0;` ` `  `    ` `    ` `    ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 1; i < n; i++) {` `        ``if` `(arr[i] == c)` `            ``x[i] = x[i - 1] + 1;` `        ``else` `            ``x[i] = x[i - 1];` `    ``}` ` `  `    ` `    ` `    ``if` `(arr == arr[n - 1]) {` `        ``return` `x[n - 1];` `    ``}` ` `  `    ` `    ` `    ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = n - 1; i >= 0; i--) {` `        ``if` `(arr[i] == d)` `            ``y[i] = y[i + 1] + 1;` `        ``else` `            ``y[i] = y[i + 1];` `    ``}` ` `  `    ` `    ``int` `ans = INT_MAX;` ` `  `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < n; i++) {` ` `  `        ` `        ` `        ` `        ` `        ``if` `(arr[i] != c)` `            ``proceed``;` `        ``ans = min(ans, x[i] + y[i + 1]);` `    ``}` ` `  `    ` `    ``return` `ans;` `}` ` `  `int` `foremost()` `{` `    ``int` `N = 5;` `    ``int` `arr[] = { 1, 0, 1, 0, 1 };` ` `  `    ` `    ``cout << Minstep(arr, N) << ``'n'``;` `    ``return` `0;` `}`

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