花花酱 LeetCode 1487. Making File Names Unique

Given an array of strings names of size n. You will create n folders in your file system such that, at the ith minute, you will create a folder with the name names[i].

Since two files cannot have the same name, if you enter a folder name which is previously used, the system will have a suffix addition to its name in the form of (k), where, k is the smallest positive integer such that the obtained name remains unique.

Return an array of strings of length n where ans[i] is the actual name the system will assign to the ith folder when you create it.

Example 1:

Input: names = ["pes","fifa","gta","pes(2019)"]
Output: ["pes","fifa","gta","pes(2019)"]
Explanation: Let's see how the file system creates folder names:
"pes" --> not assigned before, remains "pes"
"fifa" --> not assigned before, remains "fifa"
"gta" --> not assigned before, remains "gta"
"pes(2019)" --> not assigned before, remains "pes(2019)"

Example 2:

Input: names = ["gta","gta(1)","gta","avalon"]
Output: ["gta","gta(1)","gta(2)","avalon"]
Explanation: Let's see how the file system creates folder names:
"gta" --> not assigned before, remains "gta"
"gta(1)" --> not assigned before, remains "gta(1)"
"gta" --> the name is reserved, system adds (k), since "gta(1)" is also reserved, systems put k = 2. it becomes "gta(2)"
"avalon" --> not assigned before, remains "avalon"

Example 3:

Input: names = ["onepiece","onepiece(1)","onepiece(2)","onepiece(3)","onepiece"]
Output: ["onepiece","onepiece(1)","onepiece(2)","onepiece(3)","onepiece(4)"]
Explanation: When the last folder is created, the smallest positive valid k is 4, and it becomes "onepiece(4)".

Example 4:

Input: names = ["wano","wano","wano","wano"]
Output: ["wano","wano(1)","wano(2)","wano(3)"]
Explanation: Just increase the value of k each time you create folder "wano".

Example 5:

Input: names = ["kaido","kaido(1)","kaido","kaido(1)"]
Output: ["kaido","kaido(1)","kaido(2)","kaido(1)(1)"]
Explanation: Please note that system adds the suffix (k) to current name even it contained the same suffix before.

Constraints:

  • 1 <= names.length <= 5 * 10^4
  • 1 <= names[i].length <= 20
  • names[i] consists of lower case English letters, digits and/or round brackets.

Solution: Hashtable

Use a hashtable to store the mapping form base_name to its next suffix index.

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

花花酱 LeetCode 1461. Check If a String Contains All Binary Codes of Size K

Given a binary string s and an integer k.

Return True if any binary code of length k is a substring of s. Otherwise, return False.

Example 1:

Input: s = "00110110", k = 2
Output: true
Explanation: The binary codes of length 2 are "00", "01", "10" and "11". They can be all found as substrings at indicies 0, 1, 3 and 2 respectively.

Example 2:

Input: s = "00110", k = 2
Output: true

Example 3:

Input: s = "0110", k = 1
Output: true
Explanation: The binary codes of length 1 are "0" and "1", it is clear that both exist as a substring. 

Example 4:

Input: s = "0110", k = 2
Output: false
Explanation: The binary code "00" is of length 2 and doesn't exist in the array.

Example 5:

Input: s = "0000000001011100", k = 4
Output: false

Constraints:

  • 1 <= s.length <= 5 * 10^5
  • s consists of 0’s and 1’s only.
  • 1 <= k <= 20

Solution: Hashtable

Insert all possible substrings into a hashtable, the size of the hashtable should be 2^k.

Time complexity: O(n*k)
Space complexity: O(2^k*k) -> O(2^k)

花花酱 LeetCode 1456. Maximum Number of Vowels in a Substring of Given Length

Given a string s and an integer k.

Return the maximum number of vowel letters in any substring of s with length k.

Vowel letters in English are (a, e, i, o, u).

Example 1:

Input: s = "abciiidef", k = 3
Output: 3
Explanation: The substring "iii" contains 3 vowel letters.

Example 2:

Input: s = "aeiou", k = 2
Output: 2
Explanation: Any substring of length 2 contains 2 vowels.

Example 3:

Input: s = "leetcode", k = 3
Output: 2
Explanation: "lee", "eet" and "ode" contain 2 vowels.

Example 4:

Input: s = "rhythms", k = 4
Output: 0
Explanation: We can see that s doesn't have any vowel letters.

Example 5:

Input: s = "tryhard", k = 4
Output: 1

Constraints:

  • 1 <= s.length <= 10^5
  • s consists of lowercase English letters.
  • 1 <= k <= s.length

Solution: Sliding Window

Keep tracking the number of vows in a window of size k.

Space complexity: O(1)

花花酱 LeetCode 1455. Check If a Word Occurs As a Prefix of Any Word in a Sentence

Given a sentence that consists of some words separated by a single space, and a searchWord.

You have to check if searchWord is a prefix of any word in sentence.

Return the index of the word in sentence where searchWord is a prefix of this word (1-indexed).

If searchWord is a prefix of more than one word, return the index of the first word (minimum index). If there is no such word return -1.

prefix of a string S is any leading contiguous substring of S.

Example 1:

Input: sentence = "i love eating burger", searchWord = "burg"
Output: 4
Explanation: "burg" is prefix of "burger" which is the 4th word in the sentence.

Example 2:

Input: sentence = "this problem is an easy problem", searchWord = "pro"
Output: 2
Explanation: "pro" is prefix of "problem" which is the 2nd and the 6th word in the sentence, but we return 2 as it's the minimal index.

Example 3:

Input: sentence = "i am tired", searchWord = "you"
Output: -1
Explanation: "you" is not a prefix of any word in the sentence.

Example 4:

Input: sentence = "i use triple pillow", searchWord = "pill"
Output: 4

Example 5:

Input: sentence = "hello from the other side", searchWord = "they"
Output: -1

Constraints:

  • 1 <= sentence.length <= 100
  • 1 <= searchWord.length <= 10
  • sentence consists of lowercase English letters and spaces.
  • searchWord consists of lowercase English letters.

Solution 1: Brute Force

花花酱 LeetCode 1449. Form Largest Integer With Digits That Add up to Target

Given an array of integers cost and an integer target. Return the maximum integer you can paint under the following rules:

  • The cost of painting a digit (i+1) is given by cost[i] (0 indexed).
  • The total cost used must be equal to target.
  • Integer does not have digits 0.

Since the answer may be too large, return it as string.

If there is no way to paint any integer given the condition, return “0”.

Example 1:

Input: cost = [4,3,2,5,6,7,2,5,5], target = 9
Output: "7772"
Explanation:  The cost to paint the digit '7' is 2, and the digit '2' is 3. Then cost("7772") = 2*3+ 3*1 = 9. You could also paint "997", but "7772" is the largest number.
Digit    cost
  1  ->   4
  2  ->   3
  3  ->   2
  4  ->   5
  5  ->   6
  6  ->   7
  7  ->   2
  8  ->   5
  9  ->   5

Example 2:

Input: cost = [7,6,5,5,5,6,8,7,8], target = 12
Output: "85"
Explanation: The cost to paint the digit '8' is 7, and the digit '5' is 5. Then cost("85") = 7 + 5 = 12.

Example 3:

Input: cost = [2,4,6,2,4,6,4,4,4], target = 5
Output: "0"
Explanation: It's not possible to paint any integer with total cost equal to target.

Example 4:

Input: cost = [6,10,15,40,40,40,40,40,40], target = 47
Output: "32211"

Constraints:

  • cost.length == 9
  • 1 <= cost[i] <= 5000
  • 1 <= target <= 5000

Solution: DP

dp(target) := largest number to print with cost == target.
dp(target) = max(dp(target – d) + cost[d])

Time complexity: O(target^2)
Space complexity: O(target^2)
