Partition List

Problem Statment Given a linked list and a value x, partition it such that all nodes less than x come before nodes greater than or equal to x. You should preserve the original relative order of the nodes in each of the two partitions. Example Input: head = 1->4->3->2->5->2, x . . . Read more

Implement strStr()

Problem Statement Implement strStr(). Return the index of the first occurrence of needle in haystack, or -1 if needle is not part of haystack. Input: haystack = “hello”, needle = “ll” Output: 2 Solution

Remove Element

Problem Statement Given an array nums and a value val, remove all instances of that value in-place and return the new length. Do not allocate extra space for another array, you must do this by modifying the input array in-place with O(1) extra memory. The order of elements can be . . . Read more

Remove Duplicates from Sorted Array

Problem StatementGiven a sorted array nums, remove the duplicates in-place such that each element appear only once and return the new length. Do not allocate extra space for another array, you must do this by modifying the input array in-place with O(1) extra memory. Given nums = [0,0,1,1,1,2,2,3,3,4], Your function . . . Read more

Add Two Numbers

Problem Statement You are given two non-empty linked lists representing two non-negative integers. The digits are stored in reverse order and each of their nodes contain a single digit. Add the two numbers and return it as a linked list. You may assume the two numbers do not contain any . . . Read more

Two Sum

Problem Statement Given an array of integers, return indices of the two numbers such that they add up to a specific target. You may assume that each input would have exactly one solution, and you may not use the same element twice. Example Given nums = [2, 7, 11, 15], . . . Read more

Triple Sum

Problem Statement Given arrays of different sizes, find the number of distinct triplets where is an element of , written as , , and , satisfying the criteria: and For example, given and we find four distinct triplets: $latex(3,6,4), (3,6,6), (5,6,4), (5,6,6)$ Function Description Complete the triplets function in the . . .

Ice Cream Parlor

Problem Statement Each time Sunny and Johnny take a trip to the Ice Cream Parlor, they pool their money to buy ice cream. On any given day, the parlor offers a line of flavors. Each flavor has a cost associated with it. Given the value of and the of each . . . Read more

Better Compression

Problem Statement Consider a string, S, that is a series of characters, each followed by its frequency as an integer. The string is not compressed correctly, so there may be many occurrences of the same character. A properly compressed string will consist of one instance of each character in alphabetical . . .
