Problem

Design your implementation of the circular queue. The circular queue is a linear data structure in which the operations are performed based on FIFO (First In First Out) principle and the last position is connected back to the first position to make a circle. It is also called “Ring Buffer”.

One of the benefits of the circular queue is that we can make use of the spaces in front of the queue. In a normal queue, once the queue becomes full, we cannot insert the next element even if there is a space in front of the queue. But using the circular queue, we can use the space to store new values.

Implementation the MyCircularQueue class:

  • MyCircularQueue (k) Initializes the object with the size of the queue to be k.
  • int Front () Gets the front item from the queue. If the queue is empty, return -1.
  • int Rear () Gets the last item from the queue. If the queue is empty, return -1.
  • boolean enQueue (int value) Inserts an element into the circular queue. Return true if the operation is successful.
  • boolean deQueue () Deletes an element from the circular queue. Return true if the operation is successful.
  • boolean isEmpty () Checks whether the circular queue is empty or not.
  • boolean isFull () Checks whether the circular queue is full or not.

Problem

You are given an array of binary strings strs and two integers m and n.

Return the size of the largest subset of strs such that there are at most m 0‘s and n 1‘s in the subset.

A set x is a subset of a set y if all elements of x are also elements of y.

Problem

You want to form a target string of lowercase letters.

At the beginning, your sequence is target.length '?' marks. You also have a stamp of lowercase letters.

On each turn, you may place the stamp over the sequence, and replace every letter in the sequence with the corresponding letter from the stamp. You can make up to 10 * target.length turns.

For example, if the initial sequence is “?????”, and your stamp is "abc", then you may make “abc??”, “?abc?”, “??abc” in the first turn. (Note that the stamp must be fully contained in the boundaries of the sequence in order to stamp.)

If the sequence is possible to stamp, then return an array of the index of the left-most letter being stamped at each turn. If the sequence is not possible to stamp, return an empty array.

For example, if the sequence is “ababc”, and the stamp is "abc", then we could return the answer [0, 2], corresponding to the moves “?????” -> “abc??” -> “ababc”.

Also, if the sequence is possible to stamp, it is guaranteed it is possible to stamp within 10 * target.length moves. Any answers specifying more than this number of moves will not be accepted.

Problem

You are given a 2D array of integers envelopes where envelopes [i] = [wi, hi] represents the width and the height of an envelope.

One envelope can fit into another if and only if both the width and height of one envelope are greater than the other envelope’s width and height.

Return the maximum number of envelopes you can Russian doll (i.e., put one inside the other).

Note: You cannot rotate an envelope.
