Problem : Function that takes a head node and an integer value n and then returns the nth to last node in the linked list. Solution : class Node: def __init__(self, value): self.value = value self.nextnode = None def nth_to_last_node(n, head): node = head nodes = [] while node != None: nodes.append(node) node = node.nextnode return nodes[-n]

# Array Pair Sum | Python

Problem Given an integer array, output all the unique pairs that sum up to a specific value k. So the input: pair_sum([1,3,2,2],4) would return 2 pairs: (1,3) (2,2) Solution def get_unique_pair(list_of_elems,k): if len(list_of_elems) < 2: print "Please increase data" else: seen = set() output = set() for num in list_of_elems: target = k - num … Continue reading Array Pair Sum | Python
