### Find K complementary numbers from the given array

This is another approach to the problem that I have done it here. On that post, a good deal of visitors pointed out that it is actually o(n*n) not o(n) as I claimed.

Yes, the naive usage of Hashmap for holding the numbers has soared the performance and I have changed the approach as follows.

To remind the k complementary problem and its solution, you are given array of numbers and a number k of which you are going to find numbers that give k complementary. The following is an example of it.

The problem is, given numbers like `7, 1, 5, 6, 9, 3, 11, -1`

and given number 10, write a script that would print numbers that would add to 10. In the example, it would be like

7 and 3, 1 and 9, -1 and 11.

Thanks Reda and mtrad for your correction.
