花花酱 LeetCode 1502. Can Make Arithmetic Progression From Sequence

Given an array of numbers arr. A sequence of numbers is called an arithmetic progression if the difference between any two consecutive elements is the same.

Return true if the array can be rearranged to form an arithmetic progression, otherwise, return false.

Example 1:

Input: arr = [3,5,1]
Output: true
Explanation: We can reorder the elements as [1,3,5] or [5,3,1] with differences 2 and -2 respectively, between each consecutive elements.

Example 2:

Input: arr = [1,2,4]
Output: false
Explanation: There is no way to reorder the elements to obtain an arithmetic progression.

Constraints:

  • 2 <= arr.length <= 1000
  • -10^6 <= arr[i] <= 10^6

Solution 1: Sort and check.

Time complexity: O(nlog)
Space complexity: O(1)

C++

Java

python3

Solution 2: Rearrange the array

Find min / max / diff and put each element into its correct position by swapping elements in place.

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(1)

花花酱 LeetCode 1496. Path Crossing

Given a string path, where path[i] = 'N''S''E' or 'W', each representing moving one unit north, south, east, or west, respectively. You start at the origin (0, 0) on a 2D plane and walk on the path specified by path.

Return True if the path crosses itself at any point, that is, if at any time you are on a location you’ve previously visited. Return False otherwise.

Example 1:

Input: path = "NES"
Output: false 
Explanation: Notice that the path doesn't cross any point more than once.

Example 2:

Input: path = "NESWW"
Output: true
Explanation: Notice that the path visits the origin twice.

Constraints:

  • 1 <= path.length <= 10^4
  • path will only consist of characters in {'N', 'S', 'E', 'W}

Solution: Simulation + Hashtable

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(n)

花花酱 LeetCode 1491. Average Salary Excluding the Minimum and Maximum Salary

Given an array of unique integers salary where salary[i] is the salary of the employee i.

Return the average salary of employees excluding the minimum and maximum salary.

Example 1:

Input: salary = [4000,3000,1000,2000]
Output: 2500.00000
Explanation: Minimum salary and maximum salary are 1000 and 4000 respectively.
Average salary excluding minimum and maximum salary is (2000+3000)/2= 2500

Example 2:

Input: salary = [1000,2000,3000]
Output: 2000.00000
Explanation: Minimum salary and maximum salary are 1000 and 3000 respectively.
Average salary excluding minimum and maximum salary is (2000)/1= 2000

Example 3:

Input: salary = [6000,5000,4000,3000,2000,1000]
Output: 3500.00000

Example 4:

Input: salary = [8000,9000,2000,3000,6000,1000]
Output: 4750.00000

Constraints:

  • 3 <= salary.length <= 100
  • 10^3 <= salary[i] <= 10^6
  • salary[i] is unique.
  • Answers within 10^-5 of the actual value will be accepted as correct.

Solution: Brute Force

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(1)

花花酱 LeetCode 1486. XOR Operation in an Array

Given an integer n and an integer start.

Define an array nums where nums[i] = start + 2*i (0-indexed) and n == nums.length.

Return the bitwise XOR of all elements of nums.

Example 1:

Input: n = 5, start = 0
Output: 8
Explanation: Array nums is equal to [0, 2, 4, 6, 8] where (0 ^ 2 ^ 4 ^ 6 ^ 8) = 8.
Where "^" corresponds to bitwise XOR operator.

Example 2:

Input: n = 4, start = 3
Output: 8
Explanation: Array nums is equal to [3, 5, 7, 9] where (3 ^ 5 ^ 7 ^ 9) = 8.

Example 3:

Input: n = 1, start = 7
Output: 7

Example 4:

Input: n = 10, start = 5
Output: 2

Constraints:

  • 1 <= n <= 1000
  • 0 <= start <= 1000
  • n == nums.length

Solution: Simulation

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(1)

花花酱 LeetCode 1480. Running Sum of 1d Array

Given an array nums. We define a running sum of an array as runningSum[i] = sum(nums[0]…nums[i]).

Return the running sum of nums.

Example 1:

Input: nums = [1,2,3,4]
Output: [1,3,6,10]
Explanation: Running sum is obtained as follows: [1, 1+2, 1+2+3, 1+2+3+4].

Example 2:

Input: nums = [1,1,1,1,1]
Output: [1,2,3,4,5]
Explanation: Running sum is obtained as follows: [1, 1+1, 1+1+1, 1+1+1+1, 1+1+1+1+1].

Example 3:

Input: nums = [3,1,2,10,1]
Output: [3,4,6,16,17]

Constraints:

  • 1 <= nums.length <= 1000
  • -10^6 <= nums[i] <= 10^6

Solution

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(1)
