Fill 2D Array

Find the longest diameter of a m-ary tree.

Given an array of integers representing the value of coupons, return the minimum number of consecutive coupons to pick up to win the prize.

Given a n*n  2D array. Fill the integer from 1 to n*n to this 2D array that makes the sum of each row, each column and the two diagonal equal. 

Given an int n, return all possible representations of n in Fibonacci base.

A pizza shop offers n pizzas along with m toppings. A customer plans to spend around x coins. The customer should order exactly one pizza, and may order zero, one or two toppings. Each topping may be ordered only once.
Given the lists of prices of available pizzas and toppings, what is the price closest to x of possible orders? Here, a price said closer to x when the difference from x is the smaller. Note the customer is allowed to make an order that costs more than x.

Given a String, find the minimum number of deletions required to convert it into a palindrome.

Given an integer n, return the representations in Fibonacci base for the integer from 1 to n.

Given a binary grid where 0 represents water and 1 represents land. An island is surrounded by water and is formed by connecting adjacent lands horizontally or vertically. Delete all islands except their borders. A border is land adjacent to water. You may assume all four edges of the grid are surrounded by water

Normal palindrome is defined as a string that reads the same backwards as forwards, for example "abccba".

Given an input string representing one word, write a method that returns the start and end indices of all extensions in the word.

Given an integer N which represents number of edges, where bases are always 2.Find how many trapezoid you can create with the integer N?

Given an array return an integer indicating the minimum number of swap operations required to sort the array into ascending order.

Given a run-length encoded string s and a width of a board. Assume that the board is filled from left to right such that each line has exactly width chars. Return the run-length encoded string that represents the board rows from right to left without constructing the board.

Given 2 run-length encoded strings s and t. Determine if they represent the same string.

There are n students [0, ..., n-1] participate in a marathon. You are given an int array standings where standings[i] = j means that student j finished just before student i. Return the students in the order in which they finished the marathon.

Given an encoded string str, return true if and only if this string contains the specified secret word.

Given 2 strings pin and guess. Write a function to provide a hint that indicates how digits in guess match the pin.

Given two strings s and t, determine if you can convert s into t.

In a 2d array of integer, 2 denotes wall, 1 denotes zombie and 0 denotes human.

Tree Game
Two people in a game, player scores by claiming nodes in binary tree, tree node class as shown above.
The player who eventually owns more nodes wins the game.
Player A and B each claims a node at first.
After the first round, a player will only be able to claim a node adjacent to any node owned by himself.
A tree node is adjacent to its parent, left right and right child.
A node owned cannot be re-claimed.
End game when all nodes are owned.
If player A gets the first claim at node N, find whether it is possible for player B to win.
If yes, find out which node player B should claim at his first move.

Given the left view and front view of the skyline of a block as two arrays, find the maximum total height of buildings in the block.

There are orbs on an NxM board ('O' denotes orb. 'X' denotes empty slot).

Whenever two orbs are in the same column or the same row, you get to erase one of them.

Try to erase as many orbs as possible.

Find the minimum number of orbs remained on board eventually.

Given a tree with n nodes. Each node has k coins, where 0 <= k <= n . There are total n coins on the tree. The goal is to move the coins such that each node has exactly one coin. What's the minimum moves required?Each move can only move one coin to an adjacent node.

Given the length and width of a matrix, get the number of paths from bottom-left to bottom right.

Give an array A of n integers where 1 <= a[i] <= K. Find out the length of the shortest sequence that can be constructed out of numbers 1, 2, .. k that is NOT a subsequence of A.
