Coding Problem Solving

Overview

Having a talent for finding solutions to problems may accelerate our performance and put us ahead of our contemporaries or colleagues. In general, the solutions to certain problems may be accomplished in the blink of an eye, while others might take much more time, even days. As a result, it is essential to approach the programming problems in the appropriate manner in order to save time and effort. Let’s not attempt to solve the problem by using a brute-force approach.

Let’s try different ways to solve each problem, from brute force to finding the most efficient solution.

Problems and solutions

You can find all the code examples here.

Problem 1: Find pair that sums up to “k”

Given an array of integers nums and an integer k, create a boolean function that checks if there are two elements in nums such that we get k when we add them together.

Solutions


Problem 2: Find first repeating character in a given string

Given a string str, create a function that returns the first repeating character. If such character doesn’t exist, return the null character '\0'.

Solutions


Problem 3: Remove duplicates from an integer array

Given an array of integers nums, create a function that returns an array containing the values of nums without duplicates; the order doesn’t matter.

Solutions


Conclusion

In my opinion, solutions that are straightforward and simple are preferable to those that use the newest buzzword technology. Let’s not get too excited about new products before discovering if they are flexible, useful, and have any adverse effects.
