Day 14: Scope | 30 Days Of Code | HackerRank Solution

Hello coders, today we are going to solve Day 14: Scope HackerRank Solution in C++, Java and Python.

Day 14: Scope


Today we’re discussing scope.

The absolute difference between two integers, a and b, is written as |a – b|. The maximum absolute difference between two integers in a set of positive integers, elements, is the largest absolute difference between any two integers in elements.

The Difference class is started for you in the editor. It has a private integer array (elements) for storing N non-negative integers, and a public integer (maximumDifference) for storing the maximum absolute difference.


Complete the Difference class by writing the following:

  • A class constructor that takes an array of integers as a parameter and saves it to the _elements instance variable.
  • computeDifference method that finds the maximum absolute difference between any 2 numbers in _elements and stores it in the maximumDifference instance variable.

Input Format

You are not responsible for reading any input from stdin. The locked Solution class in the editor reads in 2 lines of input. The first line contains N, the size of the elements array. The second line has N space-separated integers that describe the _elements array.


  • 1 <= N <= 10
  • 1 <= _elements[i] <= 100, where 0 <= i <= N – 1

Output Format

You are not responsible for printing any output; the Solution class will print the value of the maximumDifference instance variable.

Sample Input

STDIN   Function
-----   --------
3       __elements[] size N = 3
1 2 5   __elements = [1, 2, 5]

Sample Output



The scope of the _elements array and maximumDifference integer is the entire class instance. The class constructor saves the argument passed to the constructor as the _elements instance variable (where the computeDifference method can access it).

To find the maximum difference, computeDifference checks each element in the array and finds the maximum difference between any 2 elements: |1 – 2| = 1
|1 – 5| = 4
|2 – 5| = 3

The maximum of these differences is 4, so it saves the value 4 as the maximumDifference instance variable. The locked stub code in the editor then prints the value stored as maximumDifference, which is 4.

            for(int j = i; j < n; j++){
                if(maximumDifference < abs(elements[i]-elements[j+1])){
                    maximumDifference = abs(elements[i]-elements[j+1]);
}; // End of Difference class

int main() {

    for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) {
        int e;
        cin >> e;
    Difference d(a);
    cout << d.maximumDifference;
    return 0;

            a[i] = sc.nextInt();
        Difference difference = new Difference(a);


class Difference:
    def __init__(self, a):
        self.__elements = a
    def computeDifference(self):
        maximum = 0

        for i in range(len(self.__elements)):
            for j in range(len(self.__elements)):
                absolute = abs(self.__elements[i] - self.__elements[j])
                if absolute > maximum:
                    maximum = absolute

        self.maximumDifference = maximum
# End of Difference class

_ = input()
a = [int(e) for e in input().split(' ')]

d = Difference(a)
