Welcome to Day 6 of 100 Days of Code where we solve the most frequently asked Easy level Array problem – Two Sum. Let us look at the problem:
Given an array of integers
nums and an integer
target, return indices of the two numbers such that they add up to
For Eg, If we were given an int array a = [3,2,4] and target = 6, then we know that 2+4 = 6 whose indices are 1 and 2 in the given array a. Hence we will return [1,2].
Here’s the Leetcode link for the same:
Now let us look into the solution
We are using HashMap in the above problem to store the target – nums[i] as key and the current index as value.
Time and space Complexity:
Since we need to go through all the values in nums, the time complexity will be O(N).
As we are using HashMap as additional Data Structure and in worst case we might need to store all the values, space complexity will be O(N).
