AnswerHow to find primes using SQL?
 Engineer1111 in United States
This is the SQL I came up to , but it looks like it'll only get numbers more than the square root
SELECT m1
FROM
(SELECT rownum m1 FROM dual d CONNECT BY LEVEL <1000
)
WHERE NOT EXISTS
(
SELECT x
FROM
(SELECT ROWNUM x FROM DUAL CONNECT BY LEVEL <= (sqrt(1000)))
WHERE x > 1
AND mod(m1,x) = 0
) Report Duplicate  Flag  PURGE

Find the median value using SQL. Goes without saying that you can't use MEDIAN function of Oracle SQL.
output:
101 100

AnswersGeneric Question: You have a list of items that's nearly sorted. What algorithm would you use to completely sort it? Even though it's already sorted, the least element could be at the other end ...eg: 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,1

This would depend on the size of the array , but we can use bitwise operators to effectively do it.
Lets assume a couple of helper function:
int numberOfSetBits(unsigned long int a) returns the number of bits that are set to 1
if it is upto 64 people, we can use an unsigned long int in the form of an array
global int a[64];
void addFriend(int userId, int newFriendId)
{
a[userId] = a[userId] = 1 << x;
}
List<int> GetSuggestedFriends(int UserId)
{
int friend_ctr;
int total_population
for(friend_ctr = 0; friend_ctr < total_population;friend_ctr++)
{
}
}
}
#include <stdio.h>
int find_missing_number(int a[],int size)
{
int i;
int sum = 0;
for(i = 0;i<size;i++)
{
sum = i;
sum += a[i];
}
return (size  sum);
}
int main()
{
int a[] = {0,1,3,2,4};
int x = find_missing_number(a,sizeof(a)/sizeof(int));
printf("\n missing number is %d",x);
return 0;

Does it in O(logn) times. If k is provided , then you don't need the algorithm.

What you were missing was to add the condition that x < m1. For numbers less than 33 , this would mean the number itself.

January 18, 2016 I think the class itself will contain a 2 dimensional array .
Since the number of mines is input, can we assume that we can randomly put the requisite number of mines ? Or will that be input too (although it's too cumbersome)
Every cell could have multiple states:
1. Unopened , mine ,
2. Unopened, no mine , with a number
3. Unopened, no mine , with no number (can be treated as zero)
4 . Opened,mine, detected (flag)
5. Opened, no mine , with a number
6. Opened, no mine , with no number (can be treated as zero)
We can create a 2 dimarray where each element is a struct and contains 3 elems
a. mine
b. open
c. neighbor_mines
The constructor could do this:
1. Create a 2dim array with the above structure.For each element, we can set 1 or 0 by using a random function that'll ensure that number of mines are equal to the input. We can even control that by a loop to ensure that we don't put more mines than input.
2. Loop through the 2 dimensional array and
(a) set mine = decode(random(0,1) < prob,1,0)
(b) set open = 0
3. Loop again and set the neighbor for non mine records mines by summing up 'mine' a[x1] to a[x+1] and a[y1] to a[y+1]
I think the above 2 algorithms are great. As an additional performance improvement, if we find the sum is odd, we can directly return false since if the sum of all elements is odd, it is impossible to have 2 numbers in the array whose sum is equal to the sum of the rest of the numbers in the array.
 Engineer1111 July 06, 2014seq {6,6,7} diff is 1 len 3
Clarification why do we consider 6,6,7 when there is no such continuous subarray in the array listed ? So it need not be a continuous sequence ?
Should the 3 elements be in the same order at least? If not, then sorting and counting the occurrences seems to be the best idea.
where n is ?
 Engineer1111 April 22, 2014node * find_start(node * n)
{
node * slow = n;
node * fast = n;
do
{
slow = slow>next;
fast = (fast>next)>next;
}
while((slow != fast)&&(fast!=NULL))
if(fast == NULL)
{
printf("No loop found");
return NULL;
}
else
return slow;
}
The idea is to have 2 pointers , with one going at double the speed, at some point the 2 pointers will point to the same node.
If length of loop is even, it'll finish in one iteration, else 2. Either case O(n)
There seems to be a discrepancy in the requirement vs the example:
low numbers in the input array are sorted before all the medium numbers in the input array, which come before all the high numbers in the array.
But in the example, the high numbers are not sorted.
So , finally will the list be sorted or the output expected is
[ (low numbers in any order),(medium numbers in any order), (high numbers in any order)]
?
To remove the nonnull elements , you don't need extra space
int i;
int j =0;
for (i = 0;i <n;i++)
{
if(a[i]!=NULL) a[j++] = a[i];
}
In O(n) time, and without using extra space, you've reduced the search space to j elements, then you can probably use linear search . O(n) time,O(1) space
}
To remove the nonnull elements , you don't need extra space
int i;
int j =0;
for (i = 0;i <n;i++)
{
if(a[i]!=NULL) a[j++] = a[i];
}
In O(n) time, and without using extra space, you've reduced the search space to j elements, then you can probably use linear search . O(n) time,O(1) space

July 24, 2013 I think it should be in the heap .
 Engineer1111 April 03, 2013Keep a variable sum and loop through the array  summing up all the elements: sum = sum + a[i] .
Missing number = (n*(n+1)/2)  sum
O(n) complexity .
For case 1: 5.5 is the optimum price. If you want to make profit, charge higher :)
For case 2: 5.5 too
This is making the assumption that once a player picks a number that number is removed from the hat. This would mean however that the last player does not get a chance to put back and pick a card .
If the number is placed back in the hat , then you'll need to charge 10 (for assured profit in case 2) or 5.5 (in case 1)
