LeetCode- TWO SUM

Given nums = [2, 7, 11, 15], target = 9,
Because nums[0] + nums[1] = 2 + 7 = 9,
return [0, 1].

Use a loop instead of two loops.

When we insert the elements into the table,  we also check if the current complement already exists in the table. If it exists, we find the solution.

  • Time complexity : O(n). Travel the array numbers.
  • Space complexity : O(n). Depend on how many elements are stored in the table.
    public static int[] twoSum(int[] nums, int target) {
        Map map = new HashMap();

        for(int i = 0; i < nums.length; i++){
            int different = target - nums[i];

                return new int[] {map.get(different), i};
            map.put(nums[i], i);
        throw new IllegalArgumentException("No two sum solution");
