LeetCode 1385. Find the Distance Value Between Two Arrays

Description

https://leetcode.com/problems/find-the-distance-value-between-two-arrays/

Given two integer arrays arr1 and arr2, and the integer dreturn the distance value between the two arrays.

The distance value is defined as the number of elements arr1[i] such that there is not any element arr2[j] where |arr1[i]-arr2[j]| <= d.

Example 1:

Input: arr1 = [4,5,8], arr2 = [10,9,1,8], d = 2
Output: 2
Explanation:
For arr1=4 we have:
|4-10|=6 > d=2
|4-9|=5 > d=2
|4-1|=3 > d=2
|4-8|=4 > d=2
For arr1=5 we have:
|5-10|=5 > d=2
|5-9|=4 > d=2
|5-1|=4 > d=2
|5-8|=3 > d=2
For arr1=8 we have:
|8-10|=2 <= d=2
|8-9|=1 <= d=2
|8-1|=7 > d=2
|8-8|=0 <= d=2

Example 2:

Input: arr1 = [1,4,2,3], arr2 = [-4,-3,6,10,20,30], d = 3
Output: 2

Example 3:

Input: arr1 = [2,1,100,3], arr2 = [-5,-2,10,-3,7], d = 6
Output: 1

Constraints:

• 1 <= arr1.length, arr2.length <= 500
• -10^3 <= arr1[i], arr2[j] <= 10^3
• 0 <= d <= 100

Explanation

Iterate elements from the two lists and check how many distance between two elements are qualify.

Python Solution

class Solution:
def findTheDistanceValue(self, arr1: List[int], arr2: List[int], d: int) -> int:
distance = 0

for num1 in arr1:

is_qualify = True
for num2 in arr2:
diff = abs(num1 - num2)

if diff <= d:
is_qualify = False
break

if is_qualify:
distance += 1

return distance

• Space Complexity: O(1).
