# Rotate Array

Updated: Mar 25, 2021

Given an array, rotate the array to the right by k steps, where k is non-negative.

• Try to come up as many solutions as you can, there are at least 3 different ways to solve this problem.

• Could you do it in-place with O(1) extra space?

Example 1:

```Input: nums = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7], k = 3
Output: [5,6,7,1,2,3,4]
Explanation:
rotate 1 steps to the right: [7,1,2,3,4,5,6]
rotate 2 steps to the right: [6,7,1,2,3,4,5]
rotate 3 steps to the right: [5,6,7,1,2,3,4]
```

Example 2:

```Input: nums = [-1,-100,3,99], k = 2
Output: [3,99,-1,-100]
Explanation:
rotate 1 steps to the right: [99,-1,-100,3]
rotate 2 steps to the right: [3,99,-1,-100]
```

Constraints:

• 1 <= nums.length <= 2 * 104

• -231 <= nums[i] <= 231 - 1

• 0 <= k <= 105

Solution:

```class Solution {
public void rotate(int[] nums, int k) {
k = k%nums.length;
reverse(nums,0,nums.length-1);
reverse(nums,0,k-1);
reverse(nums,k,nums.length-1);

}
public void reverse(int[] n,int start, int end)
{
while(start<end)
{
int temp=n[start];
n[start]=n[end];
n[end]=temp;
start++;
end--;
}

}
}```
