Interview Practice Extra 07 – Universal Value Binary Tree

Question Design an algorithm to verify that a tree is a universal value binary tree. Universal value binary tree means all value in that tree is the same. Solution There is two approach for this problem. One is with recursive function and another is with iterative function. For this problem, iterative function makes simpler answer. However,…

Interview Practice 07 – Determine if Two Linked Lists Intersect

Question Given 2 linked list head pointers, determine whether they intersect at some point. Solution First of all, linked list can have loop or not, and this gives 3 possible situations. 1. For the 2 loops head pointer 1 and head pointer 2, move pointer 1 at normal speed, and pointer 2 at double speed….

Interview Practice 03 – Longest Sequence that Makes the Greatest Sum

Question 输入一个整形数组,数组里有正数也有负数。 数组中连续的一个或多个整数组成一个子数组,每个子数组都有一个和。 求所有子数组的和的最大值。要求时间复杂度为O(n)。 例如输入的数组为1, -2, 3, 10, -4, 7, 2, -5,和最大的子数组为3, 10, -4, 7, 2, 因此输出为该子数组的和18。 From a set of positive and negative integers, find the longest sequence that makes the greatest sum. It is required to have the time complexity of O(n). Solution 如输入的数组为1, -2, 3, 10, -4, 7, 2, -5, 那么最大的子数组为3, 10,…
