Given an array X of n elements filled with several integers, some of them being zeroes, write a program to move all the zeros to the end. We need to preserve the relative order of non-zero elements and solve this problem in place using O(n) time complexity. Note: This is an excellent problem to learn problem solving using two pointers approach.
In data structures and algorithms, Divide and Conquer is a recursive problem-solving approach that divides the problem into smaller subproblems, recursively solves each subproblem, and combines the subproblem's solutions to get the solution of the original problem. So, there are four steps of the divide and conquer method: divide, conquer, combine and base case.
There are two sorted arrays A and B of size n each, write a program to find the median of these two sorted arrays obtained after merging (the new merged array will be an array of length 2n). The median of a sorted array of size n is defined as the middle element when n is odd and the average of the middle two elements when n is even.
Given an array of n integers and a target number, write a program to find whether a pair sum exists in the array or not. In other words, we need to check for a pair of elements in the array that sum exactly to the target value. Assume that all elements are distinct. Note: This is an excellent problem to learn problem solving using two pointers and hash table.
Given two integer arrays, X and Y of size m and n, write a program to find intersection of these two arrays. The intersection is a list of common elements present in both arrays. Suppose m > n, all array elements are distinct and intersection elements can be in any order. Note: This is an excellent problem to learn problem solving using various approaches.
An array of non-negative integers is given and the aim is to reach the last index in the minimum number of jumps. You are initially positioned at the first index of the array and each element in the array represents your maximum jump length at that position. Note: This is an excellent problem to learn problem solving using dynamic programming.
