Codility : Triangle

A zero-indexed array A consisting of N integers is given. A triplet (P, Q, R) is triangular if 0 ≤ P < Q < R < N and:

  • A[P] + A[Q] > A[R],
  • A[Q] + A[R] > A[P],
  • A[R] + A[P] > A[Q].

For example, consider array A such that:

A[0] = 10 A[1] = 2 A[2] = 5 A[3] = 1 A[4] = 8 A[5] = 20

Triplet (0, 2, 4) is triangular.

Write a function:

def solution(A)

that, given a zero-indexed array A consisting of N integers, returns 1 if there exists a triangular triplet for this array and returns 0 otherwise.

For example, given array A such that:

A[0] = 10 A[1] = 2 A[2] = 5 A[3] = 1 A[4] = 8 A[5] = 20

the function should return 1, as explained above. Given array A such that:

A[0] = 10 A[1] = 50 A[2] = 5 A[3] = 1

the function should return 0.

Assume that:

  • N is an integer within the range [0..100,000];
  • each element of array A is an integer within the range [−2,147,483,648..2,147,483,647].

Complexity:

  • expected worst-case time complexity is O(N*log(N));
  • expected worst-case space complexity is O(N), beyond input storage (not counting the storage required for input arguments).

Python Solution : 


def solution(A):
    # write your code in Python 2.7
    A=sorted(A)
    n=len(A)
    for i in xrange(0,n):
        if (i+2) <n:
            if (A[i]+A[i+1]) >A[i+2]:
                return 1
                
    return 0
