**please help me in solving this!!**Given an integer N, find the Nth number in the fibonacci series. Consider 0 and 1 to be the seed values. In a fibonacci series, each number ( Fibonacci number ) is the sum of the two preceding numbers. The series with 0 and 1 as seed values will go like- 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5… .

**Looking for best answer for following question**There is a function checkPassword() which takes a password and return an int which represents the number of correct characters at the correct position in that password.

- jaffar.ramay March 21, 2020

Write a function findPassword() which takes a list of passwords and returns the correct password or null if it doesn't find the correct password. It can make calls to checkPassword() function but it is a very expensive function so the goal is to minimize the calls to checkPassword().

Assume all passwords are of same length.

Example:-

If correct password = abcd

calling checkPassword("axyz") would return 1

Sample Input =

String[] passwords = {"xxyz","axyz", "xbyz","abyz","axyd","xycd"}

System.out.println("password = "+findPassword(passwords));

Sample Output:-

password = abcd| Flag | PURGE - 0 Answers
**Chapter 1 problem 1.2**The question asks us to write a method that tells if one string is a permutation of the other. Looking at the solution it looks like the function tells if 2 strings are anagrams and not permutations. For example the function will return true for "dog" and "dgo". Am I missing something?

**Array Delete Element**Array Deletion

- ranjan.rajiv.2010 November 11, 2019

Mark has an array , A of N elements. He Performs Q queries in it. In each query, he chooses an index I(0-based)

and does the following :

for j=I+1 to N:

if A[j] < A[I]:

A[j] = 0

you need to print what array A looks like after processing all the Q queries.

Note: The queriesare not independentof each other i.e. you need to use the changes array A, for each Query.

Constraints

1 <= T <= 10

1 <= N <= 10^5

1 <= A <= 10^9

1 <= Q <= 10^5

Input

The first line of input has an integer T,denoting the number of test cases. Each test case will consist of 3 lines .

The first line contains 2 space seperated integer, N and Q, denoting the number of element in the arrayand number of queries.

2nd line will have N space seperated integersdenoting the elements in the initial array A.

3rd line will have Q space seperated integers denoting the chosen index in the each query.

Output:

For each test case, output in a seperate line, N space seperated integer denoting the final array A.

Sample Input Output

4 3 4 3 2 4 3 4 0 0

**DE SHAW Online Round Question**Given an array of positive integers, each of which represent the number of litres of water in that particular bucket, we have to make the litres of water in every bucket equal.

- pratiks.dce November 09, 2019

We are allowed to do two types of operations any number of times:

1) We can altogether remove a bucket from the sequence

2) We can remove some water from a bucket

We have to tell what is the minimum number of litres removed to make all buckets have the same amount of water.

Eg.

Input:

1 2 3

Output:

2

Explanation:

We remove bucket 1 and remove 1 liter from Bucket 3, so total water removed is 2 liter (the amount of water in the bucket removed gets added to the total water removed).

Any idea on what would be a possible solution to this?| Flag | PURGE - 0 Answers

You can pick one item from each shop.

You cant pick same items from 2 adjacent shops.

Eg :

X 6 1 1

Y 50 50 50

Z 8 20 10

X, Y Z are items to be picked from each shop.

**hourglass**Given a 6*6 2D Array, :

- bhawana121998 October 24, 2018

1 1 1 0 0 0

0 1 0 0 0 0

1 1 1 0 0 0

0 0 0 0 0 0

0 0 0 0 0 0

0 0 0 0 0 0

We define an hourglass in A to be a subset of values with indices falling in this pattern in arr's graphical representation:

a b c

d

e f g

There are 16 hourglasses in arr, and an hourglass sum is the sum of an hourglass' values. Calculate the hourglass sum for every hourglass in arr, then print the maximum hourglass sum.

For example, given the 2D array:

-9 -9 -9 1 1 1

0 -9 0 4 3 2

-9 -9 -9 1 2 3

0 0 8 6 6 0

0 0 0 -2 0 0

0 0 1 2 4 0

We calculate the following hourglass values:

-63, -34, -9, 12,

-10, 0, 28, 23,

-27, -11, -2, 10,

9, 17, 25, 18

Our highest hourglass value is 28 from the hourglass:

0 4 3

1

8 6 6

Note: If you have already solved the Java domain's Java 2D Array challenge, you may wish to skip this challenge.

Function Description

Complete the function hourglassSum in the editor below. It should return an integer, the maximum hourglass sum in the array.

hourglassSum has the following parameter(s):

arr: an array of integers

Input Format

Each of the 6 lines of inputs arr[i] contains 6 space-separated integers arr[i][j].

Constraints

Output Format

Print the largest (maximum) hourglass sum found in .

Sample Input

1 1 1 0 0 0

0 1 0 0 0 0

1 1 1 0 0 0

0 0 2 4 4 0

0 0 0 2 0 0

0 0 1 2 4 0

Sample Output

**minimize digitsum**You are given positive integers N and D. You may perform operations of the following two types:

- ceaser October 19, 2018

add D to N, i.e. change N to N+D

change N to digitsum(N)

Here, digitsum(x) is the sum of decimal digits of x. For example, digitsum(123)=1+2+3=6, digitsum(100)=1+0+0=1, digitsum(365)=3+6+5=14.

You may perform any number of operations (including zero) in any order. Please find the minimum obtainable value of N and the minimum number of operations required to obtain this value.

**Running time for a video question**Hi all,

- iosdevresume July 13, 2018

On one of the video Gayle presents the following problem -

"Given p number of people with their birth year and their death year, return the year with the maximum population".

At the same video she also states the best possible solution is O(P+Y) s.t. P is the number of peoples and Y is the length of the array of the years from the minimal birth year to the maximal death year, Can't the optimal solution be O(P)?

Here's how -

Generally she achieved a solution of O(P+Y) since she iterate through all the peoples in the input getting the minimal year and the maximal year that is O(P) which gives her Y the total number of years all the people was living in, then she instantiate an array on the size of Y that is O(Y), then she goes through every person in the input, add +1 for birth and -1 for deaths so that is O(P) and lastly she goes through all the array of years summing up the number of +1\-1 to that point which is giving her the number of people living in that year so again O(Y), all together it's O(P+Y+P+Y) => O(P+Y)

However - using a TreeMap (a hashmap that uses an inner tree to sort the dataset) we can achieve O(P), here's how -

traverse the people input and for every person p on the people list add +1 for the person birth year and -1 for the person death year that will end up with a tree with total (MAX) of 2*p nodes and traversing the tree to every year can yield that same result as traversing an array on the size of Y (however using a tree with 2p nodes is much memory efficient than using an array with potentially a-lot of unused 0's) while traversing the tree we can also keep int max which is the year with the max alive people in it.

Isn't that a better solution? or am I missing something?| Flag | PURGE
