Add Two Numbers

You are given two non-empty linked lists representing two non-negative integers. The digits are stored in reverse order, and each of their nodes contains a single digit. Add the two numbers and return the sum as a linked list.

You may assume the two numbers do not contain any leading zero, except the number 0 itself.

Example 1:

Input: l1 = [2,4,3], l2 = [5,6,4] 
Output: [7,0,8] 
Explanation: 342 + 465 = 807. 

Example 2:

Input: l1 = [0], l2 = [0] 
Output: [0] 

Example 3:

Input: l1 = [9,9,9,9,9,9,9], l2 = [9,9,9,9] 
Output: [8,9,9,9,0,0,0,1] 


  • The number of nodes in each linked list is in the range [1, 100].

  • 0 <= Node.val <= 9

  • It is guaranteed that the list represents a number that does not have leading zeros.


class Solution {
    public ListNode addTwoNumbers(ListNode l1, ListNode l2) {
        ListNode result = new ListNode(0);
        ListNode p1 = l1; 
        ListNode p2 = l2;
        ListNode curr = result;
        int carry=0;
        while(p1!=null || p2!=null)
            int x = (p1!=null)?p1.val:0;
            int y = (p2!=null)?p2.val:0;
            int sum = carry+x+y;
            carry = sum/10;
   = new ListNode(sum%10);
   = new ListNode(carry);

Minimum Deletions to Make Character Frequencies Unique

A string s is called good if there are no two different characters in s that have the same frequency. Given a string s, return the minimum number of characters you need to delete to make s good. The f

Smallest String With A Given Numeric Value

The numeric value of a lowercase character is defined as its position (1-indexed) in the alphabet, so the numeric value of a is 1, the numeric value of b is 2, the numeric value of c is 3, and so on.
