🍤Algorithm

Firstly check the adjacency list.

Then, find how many edges are there from each vertex.
 Return the total number of edges.

🍤Explanation

Let us have the adjacency list representation of this graph.

We pass the adjacency list and number of vertices 4 to the findSum function.

Next, we take a sum variable and initialize it to 0.

Now, we run a for loop from 0 to the number of vertices that is 4. And find the size of each vertex’s list and add it to the sum.

So, first, u will be 0 since the size of the adjacency list of 0 is 2, and we add 2 to the sum. Hence, now, the sum will be equal to 2.

Next, u becomes 1. Since the size of the adjacency list of 1 is 1, we add 1 to the sum. Then, u become 2. Again, as the size of the adjacency list of 2 is 1, we add 1 to the sum. Then, u become three since the adjacency list of 3’s size is 0.
 The sum remains 4; we come out of the for loop and return 4. So, the Sum of dependencies for this graph is 4.
Time Complexity: O(V), where V is the number of vertices in the graph.
Space Complexity: O(1)

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a dependency graph?
A directed graph that represents the dependencies of several objects toward each other is a dependency graph.
How to determine whether there is a dependency in a graph?
In a graph, if there is an edge from u to v, then u depends on v.
What is the use of a dependency graph?
A dependency graph can be used to establish dependencies between tasks, allowing us to specify the sequence in which they should be finished and which tasks must be finished before others can be released.
How to find the sum of dependencies in a graph?
Check the adjacency list, find how many edges are there from each vertex, and return the total number of edges.
Conclusion
In this article, we have thoroughly discussed what dependency graphs are, their applications, and an example to understand them. We have also implemented the code to find the Sum of Dependencies in a Graph in C++ and Python.
