Minimum Path Sum

Given a m x n grid filled with non-negative numbers, find a path from top left to bottom right whichminimizes the sum of all numbers along its path. Note: You can only move either down or right at any point in time. Advertisements

Different Ways to Add Parentheses

Given a string of numbers and operators, return all possible results from computing all the different possible ways to group numbers and operators. The valid operators are +, – and *. Example 1 Input: “2-1-1”. ((2-1)-1) = 0 (2-(1-1)) = 2 Output: [0, 2] Example 2 Input: “2*3-4*5” (2*(3-(4*5))) = -34 ((2*3)-(4*5)) = -14 ((2*(3-4))*5)…


Given a collection of distinct numbers, return all possible permutations. For example, [1,2,3] have the following permutations: [ [1,2,3], [1,3,2], [2,1,3], [2,3,1], [3,1,2], [3,2,1] ]  

🌟 Longest Increasing Subsequence

Given an unsorted array of integers, find the length of longest increasing subsequence. For example, Given [10, 9, 2, 5, 3, 7, 101, 18], The longest increasing subsequence is [2, 3, 7, 101], therefore the length is 4. Note that there may be more than one LIS combination, it is only necessary for you to…

Find Minimum in Rotated Sorted Array

Suppose a sorted array is rotated at some pivot unknown to you beforehand. (i.e., 0 1 2 4 5 6 7 might become 4 5 6 7 0 1 2). Find the minimum element. You may assume no duplicate exists in the array.  

Populating Next Right Pointers in Each Node

Given a binary tree struct TreeLinkNode { TreeLinkNode *left; TreeLinkNode *right; TreeLinkNode *next; } Populate each next pointer to point to its next right node. If there is no next right node, the next pointer should be set to NULL. Initially, all next pointers are set to NULL. Note: You may only use constant extra…

Unique Paths

A robot is located at the top-left corner of a m x n grid (marked ‘Start’ in the diagram below). The robot can only move either down or right at any point in time. The robot is trying to reach the bottom-right corner of the grid (marked ‘Finish’ in the diagram below). How many possible…

🌟Gray Code

The gray code is a binary numeral system where two successive values differ in only one bit. Given a non-negative integer n representing the total number of bits in the code, print the sequence of gray code. A gray code sequence must begin with 0. For example, given n = 2, return [0,1,3,2]. Its gray…

Maximum Subarray

Find the contiguous subarray within an array (containing at least one number) which has the largest sum. For example, given the array [βˆ’2,1,βˆ’3,4,βˆ’1,2,1,βˆ’5,4], the contiguous subarray [4,βˆ’1,2,1] has the largest sum = 6.

🌟Best Time to Buy and Sell Stock with Cooldown

Say you have an array for which the ith element is the price of a given stock on day i. Design an algorithm to find the maximum profit. You may complete as many transactions as you like (ie, buy one and sell one share of the stock multiple times) with the following restrictions: You may…

Generate Parentheses

Given n pairs of parentheses, write a function to generate all combinations of well-formed parentheses. For example, given n = 3, a solution set is: [ “((()))”, “(()())”, “(())()”, “()(())”, “()()()” ]

Search Insert Position

  Given a sorted array and a target value, return the index if the target is found. If not, return the index where it would be if it were inserted in order. You may assume no duplicates in the array. Here are few examples. [1,3,5,6], 5 β†’ 2 [1,3,5,6], 2 β†’ 1 [1,3,5,6], 7 β†’…
