### In Array find largest second number ?

5 Answers

Can,t we do sorting from largest to smallest give arr[1] which is of course second largest Less

It Took Time but Simple logic is needed.

Would be impressive to solve the general case... find the kth large number: create a minheap of size k, and for each element in the array, if that number is bigger than the top of the minheap, replace the top of the minheap with that number and recreate the minheap. Running time is O(nlgn). If you can have negative numbers, then you can easily modify this code. int findKthLargestNumber(int[] A, int k) { if (k minHeap[2*i+1]) { int temp = minHeap[i]; minHeap[i] = minHeap[2*i+1]; minHeap[ 2*i+1] = temp; i = 2*i+1; } else if (minHeap.length minHeap[2*i+2)]) { int temp = minHeap[i]; minHeap[i] = minHeap[2*i+2]; minHeap[ 2*i+2] = temp; i = 2*i+2; } else { done = true; } } Less

### Given 100 white marbles and 100 black marbles and two jaws. Put these marbles in the two jars in a way that would maximize the chance of retrieving a white marble from any given jaw.

4 Answers

Really that is what you would answer? What if they stirred the jars around after you distributed the marbles? Personally I think a better answer is to put 1 white marble in the first far and 99 white marbles and 100 black marbles in the second jar. If you choose the jar at random you now have a 74.87% chance of getting a white marble, regardless of the marbles position in the jar. Less

qq is right, that is the optimum combination.

2 colours, 2 jars. White in one, black in the other

Interface is a service recuirments specification which describes the services offered. And it is 100% abstract class. If we don't want to allow a program to create an object for a class, then declare that class as abstract class. Methods in abstract class are may or may not abstract methods. Less
