# K-diff Pairs in an Array

Given an array of integers nums and an integer k, return the number of unique k-diff pairs in the array. A k-diff pair is an integer pair (nums[i], nums[j]), where the following are true:

• 0 <= i < j < nums.length

• |nums[i] - nums[j]| == k

Notice that |val| denotes the absolute value of val. Example 1:

```Input: nums = [3,1,4,1,5], k = 2
Output: 2
Explanation: There are two 2-diff pairs in the array, (1, 3) and (3, 5). Although we have two 1s in the input, we should only return the number of unique pairs. ```

Example 2:

```Input: nums = [1,2,3,4,5], k = 1
Output: 4
Explanation: There are four 1-diff pairs in the array, (1, 2), (2, 3), (3, 4) and (4, 5).

```

Example 3:

```Input: nums = [1,3,1,5,4], k = 0
Output: 1
Explanation: There is one 0-diff pair in the array, (1, 1).

```

Constraints:

• 1 <= nums.length <= 104

• -107 <= nums[i] <= 107

• 0 <= k <= 107

Solution:

```class Solution {
public int findPairs(int[] nums, int k) {
Map<Integer,Integer> map = new HashMap<>();
for(int n:nums)
{
map.put(n,map.getOrDefault(n,0)+1);
}
int result=0;
for(int x:map.keySet())
{
if((k>0 && map.containsKey(x+k)) || (k==0 && map.get(x)>1))
result++;
}
return result;
}
}

```
