So, with the use of hash set, it will be achieved in O(n) where n is the total number of elements in array.

Approach 1.Here the first improvement can be achieved, if you look at the caterpillar array. Here you have [2,4,5]. The easiest catch is the discard those caterpillars which are divisible by other. So which will make our caterpillar array [2,4]. It is because the leaves that are eaten by 4 can also be eaten by 2. So we do not need to loop over all the caterpillars. This way we can save many iterations by reducing unnecessary caterpillar.

Step 2: Iterate over each element in set

import java.util.HashSet; public class CountDuplicates static int countDuplicates(int[] numbers) HashSetInteger set = new HashSetInteger(); HashSetInteger duplicateSet = new HashSetInteger(); for(int i=0;inumbers.length;i++) ntains(numbers[i])) duplicateSet.add(numbers[i]); else set.add(numbers[i]); return duplicateSet.size(); public static void main(String p[]) int a[]=20,20,20,30,40,50,60,90,80,90,100; System.out.println(Total Number having duplicate Count:+countDuplicates(a));

And then compute the ceil of the square root of 100 that would be 10.

Total Number of Perfect Squares (Hacker Rank Interview Question)

You can also clone the repository from GIT using the link below:

The worst approach would be to loop over each element and check whether it is an integer.

Output: Total number of duplicate numbers present in the given array

b. If yes, then add it to duplicate set

Here the naïve approach would be to loop over all the leaves and also loop over all the caterpillars and discard those leaves that are divisible by it. It will have 0 (n2) complexity.

Below is the screen shots of my project directory and the code for the above solution:

2. Do not copy element to another array, just simple store the last index value and decrease it in recursive call.

1 2 5 9    (Subtracted 3 from each elements)

Here in this problem, the input will be an array of integer and also the difference value. So it will ask to out put either the total unique pairs of elements from the array having difference or just total count of that pairs.

Again you can find the above code on git repo:

Match the braces and verify weather all the opening braces has the closing braces in right order.

4             (Subtracted 3 from each elements)

At each iteration, find minimum number and subtract it from element and print non zero elements

Input: Total Leaves N = 10 Caterpillars: 2,4,5,10,12 Output: Reduced Caterpillars:[2, 5] Survived Leaves Count:4 Input: Total Leaves N = 20 Caterpillars: 2,3,4,5 Output: Reduced Caterpillars:[2, 3, 5] Survived Leaves Count:6 Input: Total Leaves N = 20 Caterpillars: 2,4,5,10,12 Output: Reduced Caterpillars:[2, 5] Survived Leaves Count:8

Step 2.  When you find closing bracket: Do pop and check whether closing and opening bracket match. If yes, then continue, if not then break and return NO.

3 7          (Subtracted 1 from each elements)

Output: print each iteration by subtracting the smallest elements till array becomes empty

The output of above code is as below:

Step 3: output the size of duplicate hash set

The best approach would be to determine the floor of root of first integer and ceil of root of last integer.

we have leaves [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]

Please Enter Your String () Pass Please Enter Your String ((())) Pass Please Enter Your String ((((((( Fail Please Enter Your String )))))((((( Fail Please Enter Your String )))))) Fail

There are 2 place where you can improve on memory as well as the time complexity (less iteration).

Caterpillar 2 can eat: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10

Now the question will be like, how many leaves will be left if it will be eaten in a way where (Leaf % catterpillar == 0).

import java.util.Scanner; public class PerfectSquare public static void main(String args[]) Scanner in = new ); System.out.println(Please Enter Your Lower Limit); int low = in.nextInt(); System.out.println(Please Enter Your Upper Limit); int high = in.nextInt(); in.close(); int smallestNumber = (int)Math.ceil(Math.sqrt(low)); int highestNumber = (int)Math.floor(Math.sqrt(high)); System.out.println(Total Number of Perfect square are:+(highestNumber-smallestNumber+1));

Here, you will have fixed size array with integer elements called catter pillars.  For example: [2,4,5] and you have integer value of totalLeaves. For example 10, so it will have values from 1 to 10.

Step 1: Create a Set of all the elements.

Below is the java implementation and sample output.

Below is the code in java for the above problem.

a. Check whether element is in the Hash set

import java.util.Arrays; import java.util.List; import java.util.Scanner; import java.util.Stack; public class BracesCheck public static void main(String args[]) Scanner in = new ); System.out.println(Please Enter Your String); String inputString = in.nextLine(); System.out.println(checkBraces(inputString)); in.close(); static String checkBraces(String value) StackCharacter specialCharStack = new StackCharacter(); String response = Fail; char tempChar; Character[] openingBraces = [,(,; Character[] closingBraces = ],),; ListCharacter openingBracesList = Arrays.asList(openingBraces); ListCharacter closingBracesList = Arrays.asList(closingBraces); if(value == null) return response; else if(value.length()==0) response = Pass; else for(int i=0; i value.length(); i++) tempChar = value.charAt(i); ntains(tempChar)) specialCharStack.push(tempChar); else if(closingBracesList.contains(tempChar)) if(!specialCharStack.isEmpty()) if(tempChar==) && ( != specialCharStack.pop()) return response; else if(tempChar== && !=specialCharStack.pop()) return response; else if(tempChar==] && [ != specialCharStack.pop()) return response; else return response; else return response; if( specialCharStack.isEmpty()) response = Pass; return response; else return response;

So first compute the floor of the square root of 10 that would be 3.

Input: String of braces only:[](()()]

At each recursion step, we will call the method by passing values of X or Y in order. The end of the recursion would be the length of array reaching the value of N.

Problem: Finding the number of perfect squares between two integer range.

When Binary Search Tree can perform worst?

X and Y are integer values, where X Y

10 3 = 7 will be the output. It will be O(1) .

To solve this problem, we can use recursion by passing the value of X and Y with the current state array.

import java.util.HashSet; import java.util.Iterator; public class KDiff public static void main(String args[]) int pairCount = 0; Integer elements[] = 1,3,4,5,8,8; int kDiff = 2; if(elements.length1 && kDiff=1 && elements.length == elements.length) HashSetInteger hSet = new HashSetInteger(); for(int i=0;ielements.length;i++) int inputElement = elements[i]; ntains(inputElement)) hSet.add(inputElement); IteratorInteger itSet = hSet.iterator(); while (itSet.hasNext()) Integer value = itSet.next(); Integer subtractValue = value+kDiff; if(hSet.contains(subtractValue)) System.out.println(Pair Found:+value+ & +subtractValue); pairCount++; else pairCount=0; System.out.println(Total Pairs:+pairCount);

Step 2: Loop over each element in the given array

Output: total number of perfect squares including this number – int count

1. Identify minimum value while subtracting the minimum value

Step 1.  When you find opening bracket: Do Push.

Below code is implementation of above approach.

The caterpillar problem (Hacker Rank Interview Questions)

Input: String of braces only:[]()[()()]

1 4 8       (Subtracted 1 from each elements)

The use of Hash set can be done in order to solve this by traversing each element and adding it into the set, later on they are checked for repetitive addition (i.e. we make sure that the numbers were not included already!)

Input: first integer and last integer –  int startInteger, int endInteger

Step 1: Create 2 hash sets. 1 is for all the elements and the other is for the duplicate elements.

For the above problem, naive approach is to find the minimum in each iteration, subtracting it and copy it in new memory.

Check whether number (element value + diff) is in hashset.

Input: Integer array with 0 or more repeated values.
