Find the Rotation Count in Rotated Sorted array

+1 vote

Find the count k by which array has been rotated in the rotated sorted array. So for example we have sorted array as 2,3,6,12, 15, 18. Now suppose the array is rotated k times ( we don’t know k), such that array becomes 15, 18,2,3,6,12 We have to find K?

Store the largest element of sorted array in a temp variable before the array is rotated.
Once the array is rotated, find the current index of largest element then k = (array size- 1) - current array index.
