# Construct Target Array With Multiple Sums

You are given an array target of n integers. From a starting array arr consisting of n 1's, you may perform the following procedure :

• let x be the sum of all elements currently in your array.

• choose index i, such that 0 <= i < n and set the value of arr at index i to x.

• You may repeat this procedure as many times as needed.

Return true if it is possible to construct the target array from arr, otherwise, return false.

Example 1:

```Input: target = [9,3,5]
Output: true
[1, 1, 1], sum = 3 choose index 1
[1, 3, 1], sum = 5 choose index 2
[1, 3, 5], sum = 9 choose index 0
[9, 3, 5] Done

```

Example 2:

```Input: target = [1,1,1,2]
Output: false
Explanation: Impossible to create target array from [1,1,1,1].

```

Example 3:

```Input: target = [8,5]
Output: true

```

Constraints:

• n == target.length

• 1 <= n <= 5 * 104

• 1 <= target[i] <= 109

Solution:

```class Solution {
public boolean isPossible(int[] target) {
PriorityQueue<Integer> queue = new PriorityQueue<>((a,b)-> (b-a));
long total = 0;
for(int n:target)
{
total+=n;
}
while(!queue.isEmpty())
{
int a = queue.poll();
total-=a;
if(a==1 || total==1)
return true;
if(a<total || total==0 || a%total==0) return false;
a%=total;
total+=a;
}
return true;
}
}```
