花花酱 LeetCode 1252. Cells with Odd Values in a Matrix

Given n and m which are the dimensions of a matrix initialized by zeros and given an array indices where indices[i] = [ri, ci]. For each pair of [ri, ci] you have to increment all cells in row ri and column ci by 1.

Return the number of cells with odd values in the matrix after applying the increment to all indices.

Example 1:

Input: n = 2, m = 3, indices = [[0,1],[1,1]]
Output: 6
Explanation: Initial matrix = [[0,0,0],[0,0,0]].
After applying first increment it becomes [[1,2,1],[0,1,0]].
The final matrix will be [[1,3,1],[1,3,1]] which contains 6 odd numbers.

Example 2:

Input: n = 2, m = 2, indices = [[1,1],[0,0]]
Output: 0
Explanation: Final matrix = [[2,2],[2,2]]. There is no odd number in the final matrix.


  • 1 <= n <= 50
  • 1 <= m <= 50
  • 1 <= indices.length <= 100
  • 0 <= indices[i][0] < n
  • 0 <= indices[i][1] < m

Solution 1: Simulation

Time complexity: O((n+m)*k + n*m)
Space complexity: O(n*m)


Solution 2: Counting

For each row and column, compute how many times it will be increased (odd or even).
For each a[i][j], check how many times the i-th row and j-th column were increased, if the sum is odd then a[i][j] will odd.
Time complexity: O(n*m + k)
Space complexity: O(n+m)
