## Evaluation of Infix expressions

Infix notation is commonly used in arithmetic formula or statements, the operators are written in-between their operands. Let’s assume the below Operands are real numbers. Permitted operators: +,-, *, /, ^(exponentiation) Blanks are permitted...

## Least Recently Used (LRU) Cache – Using LinkedHashSet and Deque | Set 2

Objective: Design and Implement a data structure Least Recently Used (LRU) Cache. Earlier we had seen Least Recently Used (LRU) Cache – Using HashMap and Doubly Linked List. In this article, we will see...

## Merge K sorted Linked List – Using Priority Queue

Objective: Given, K sorted linked list, Write an algorithm to merge all the linked list into one linked list which will be also be sorted. Example: List 1: –>1–>5 List 2: –>4–>8 List 3:...

## Count Set bits in a given Number

Objective: Given a Number, find all the set bits in that number. Example: Number: 23 Set bits: 4 (10111) Number: 15 Set bits: 4 (1111) Number: 21 Set bits: 3 (10101) Approach: Check the...

## Product of all Unique elements in a given array.

Objective: Given an array of integers which contains duplicates as well. Write a program to find the product of all unique elements in the array. This problem is also referred as find the product...

## Valid Multiple Parentheses

Objective: Given a string containing just the characters ‘(‘, ‘)’, ‘{‘, ‘}’, ‘[‘ and ‘]’, determine if the input string is valid. Example: ()()([]({}))[] valid: true ()({]) valid: false []{}() valid: true [(}{)] valid: false Earlier we had seen problem Valid...

## Check if given number is perfect square – O(√N) Solution

Objective: Given a number, write a program to check if given number is perfect sqaure. Example: N = 16 Output: True N = 32 Output: False Approach: Naive Approach: If N = 1 return...
