dm_designpulp + 1 comment Compare The Triplets problem is very simple and similar to comparing marks of three subject of two students in a way like if subject1, student1 got high marks than student2 than student1 got 1 point and the same repeat for subject2, and subject3 at the end print the both student points. Maximum points can a student earn is 3 or minimum can be 0 or there may be the equal point if in subject1 both students got the same point. Check the explanation section for better understanding.

**Explanation:-**Let's take an example and compare with our logic, suppose two students are Bob and Alice and Bob got 56, 75, 26 marks and Alice got 84, 45, 26 Now Compare The TripletsBob Marks===> 56, 75, 26 Alice Marks==> 84, 45, 26

Bob Marks Alice Marks Bob Point Alice Point

56 < 84 0 1 75 > 45 1 0 26 = 26 0 0

So we can see that Bob and Alice got 1, 1 point in tale That is an answer print on the screen.

klaas_tojkander + 7 comments Yeah, it needs some polish. :) In C# it would be:

var pointsAlice = ((a0>b0)?1:0)+ ((a1>b1)?1:0)+ ((a2>b2)?1:0); var pointsBob = ((a0<b0)?1:0)+ ((a1<b1)?1:0)+ ((a2<b2)?1:0); Console.WriteLine(pointsAlice+" " +pointsBob);

MobilityWins + 0 comments so this would allow pointsAlice to have split results? because it is asking to have the results split for who got the point for all 3 comparisons

shropshireclovis + 10 comments So funny how in programming you can have totally different roads to the same solution. Here's mine:

static int[] solve(int a0, int a1, int a2, int b0, int b1, int b2) { // Complete this function int alexScore = 0; int bobScore = 0; if(a0 != b0) switch (a0 > b0) { case true: alexScore++; break; case false: bobScore++; break; default: break; } if(a1 != b1) switch (a1 > b1) { case true: alexScore++; break; case false: bobScore++; break; default: break; } if(a2 != b2) switch (a2 > b2) { case true: alexScore++; break; case false: bobScore++; break; default: break; } int[] scoreArr = { alexScore, bobScore }; return scoreArr; }

axelstewart + 1 comment I have created what might be the worst possible functional solution:

int compare(int a, int b) { if (a > b) { return 1; } else if (b > a) { return -1; } else { return 0; } } vector < int > solve(int a0, int a1, int a2, int b0, int b1, int b2){ int a = 0; // Difference of A and B's scores int b = 0; // Number of points awarded in total int c = 0; // Current return value int d = 0; // This is A's score int e = 0; // This is B's score c = compare(a0,b0); a += c; b += abs(c); c = compare(a1,b1); a += c; b += abs(c); c = compare(a2,b2); a += c; b += abs(c); d = a + (b-a)/2; e = b - d; vector < int > retvals = {d, e}; return retvals; }

Good intentions lead me to bad code

Colby_Hepworth + 0 comments [deleted]mirkwood_ape + 9 comments Very easy to understand but you might want to use some python features, i.e., list comprehension

This was my Python 3 attempt

apurvanigam + 2 comments We can just use a single for loop and maintain two counters for points. something like this in Python2:

meetparmar671 + 0 comments [deleted]

pushembekar + 0 comments I had a similar solution! Just to be a little nitpicky you can make the second "if" statement within the for loop as an "else if" so that the condition doesn't get evaluated if the first one is true already.

visheshsahni + 6 comments Similar solution, just make sure you make your programs dynamic so that you have minimilistic hardcoding. I hope you will understand comapring below and your's

why faster and scaleable? Linked list faster than array list, use of else if.

scalable because I haven't specified the hardcoded length for inputs

`static List<Integer> compareTriplets(List<Integer> a, List<Integer> b) { int aWin = 0; int bWin = 0; List<Integer> win = new LinkedList<Integer>(); for (int i = 0; i < a.size(); i++) { if (a.get(i) > b.get(i)) ++aWin; else if (a.get(i) < b.get(i)) ++bWin; } win.add(aWin); win.add(bWin); return win; }`

neel9010 + 0 comments Sorry i have to disagree with you.

- Its hard to read.
- If there are more than 3 inputs in future , your code needs to be changed.

Now if you look at my code, it will work for more than 3 inputs without changing anything.

static List<int> compareTriplets(List<int> a, List<int> b) { var a_point = a.Count(x => x > b[a.IndexOf(x)]); var b_point = b.Count(x => x > a[b.IndexOf(x)]); return new List<int> {a_point, b_point}; }

jimmy1087 + 1 comment I had the same doubts, searched on FAQ section and on google about constraints in HackerRank but found little.

I was getting it wrong, the constraints have already been taken into consideration when building the test cases. So do not worry about checking constraints within your solution.

Actually checking constraint will add up delays that most likely will affect time solving in more difficult problems.

Thank you for explaining.

abelardo + 6 comments These are ternary operators, so (a0>b0)?1:0 is essentially saying "evaluate a0>b0, if it's true evaluate to 1, otherwise 0". Basically this is the form:

will96 + 1 comment Im confused, for the other answers how I'm reading this would work is essentially;Say these are both going to equal true, if (a0 > b0) you get aliceScore = 1. And then when you go to the next if (a1 > b1) you get aliceScore = 1 again. Instead of aliceScore += 1; Can you help me understand that part. Basically I'm not understanding where is the (if true +1), I'm only seeing (if true set it to 1).

emsurowiec + 1 comment We use them. While the ternary operator is nice and concise in this particular solution, it will not scale as soon as you add more data. Just imagine the code you'd have to write if it turned out that its 10 or 100 scores that you need to compare - instead of 3.

mo_afolayan + 0 comments What a lovely solution. I never would've thought to look at it that way. What was your thought process?

qeedy03 + 1 comment this is wrong, because solve method need return int [] value

why my code wrong? but then output is right

static int[] solve(int[] a, int[] b) {

`int pointAlice = 0; int pointBob = 0; for(int i=0; i < ((a.length<=b.length)?a.length:b.length);i++){ pointAlice += ((a[i]>b[i])?1:0); pointBob += ((a[i]>b[i])?0:1); } return new int[] {pointAlice,pointBob};`

}

michellerodri247 + 0 comments The page is always providing som best information best shared hosting. The explanation of the problem and coding of the problem is explained well on the problem section. And it is a really interesting and understanding one for the common people.

addison_ + 5 comments Here's another Python3 example. A bit lengthy, but gets the job done:

def solve(a0, a1, a2, b0, b1, b2): alice = [a0, a1, a2] bob = [b0, b1, b2] score = [0, 0] for a, b in zip(alice, bob): if a > b: score[0]+= 1 elif b > a: score[1]+=1 return score

emanweg + 0 comments this is what I aimed at for

The zip function is vital.

Good work!

blonkm + 0 comments this is perfect. Anything shorter becomes less readable. Using just 1 special function (zip) which is quite familiar in Python. Also, scalable to more items, and uses clear variable names.

One liners are not for professional coders, but for script kiddies showing off their code-fu.

arthurazs + 1 comment Great solution, I'd remove the

`if`

s though:`for a, b in zip(alice, bob): score[0] += a > b score[1] += a < b`

jurgen_bergmann + 0 comments very nice, so simple, i like how you leverage the boolean return from the comparison

ste17ste + 0 comments Thanks, this is great! Makes sense and it helped me write this after I saw your example:

def compareTriplets(a, b): score = [0,0] for i in range(0,3): if a[i] > b[i]: score[0] += 1 elif a[i] < b[i]: score[1] += 1 return score

def solve(a, b): score = [0, 0] for a_point,b_point in zip(a, b):

codEinstein + 1 comment I'm having same problem. The code works for my test cases, but does not let me submit due to error of "join" not being recognized.

Victorviannaribe1 your solution doesnt work. Tenta de novo

d_fegan + 0 comments Is your function returning a string? If so, this is the issue. The join method expects an array, so you want to be returning something in the format [aScore, bScore].

Then, result.join will convert the array into the expected output format.

This at least worked for me, hope my explanation is of some use to you

naan_ace + 2 comments I got a same error so I tried to return array. Then it fixed.

`var result = []; var aScore = 0, bScore = 0; for (var i = 0; i < a.length; i++) { if (a[i] > b[i]) aScore++; if (a[i] < b[i]) bScore++; } result[0] = aScore; result[1] = bScore; return result;`

saraebroad + 0 comments var a = [a0, a1, a2]; var b = [b0, b1, b2]; var ascore = 0; var bscore = 0;

function compareTriplets(a0, a1, a2, b0, b1, b2) { var resultsArray = [];

for (var i = 0; i < a.length; i ++) {

`if (a[i] > b[i]) { ascore++ } if (a[i] < b[i]) { bscore++ }`

} resultsArray[0] = ascore; resultsArray[1] = bscore; return (ascore + "" + bscore) }

uguryildiz + 0 comments Wow! It really helped dude. Thank you.

erocheleau + 0 comments Yea if you chose the JavaScript (nodejs) template for the response, the solve method expects you to return an array.

[scoreAlice scoreBob]

But tbh you should be able to figure that out by reading the error ;) Good luck.

This code worked for me in C#... Threw the variables into new arrays, guess would be easier just to toss it arrays? then compared each in the for loop.

kevingalloway + 1 comment That is almost exactly how I did it. haha Arrays seemed most logical to me.

`static int[] solve(int a0, int a1, int a2, int b0, int b1, int b2){ // Complete this function int[] alice = {a0, a1, a2}; int[] bob = {b0, b1, b2}; int[] result = {0,0}; for(int i=0; i<3; i++){ if(alice[i] > bob[i]){ result[0]++; } else if(alice[i] < bob[i]) result[1]++; } return result;`

jonsultana + 2 comments You should never hard code numbers(0 is ok but any other number has no meaning). What is position 0 in the array? What is position 1 in the array? Create an enumeration to help give the positions within the array meaning.

public enum Names : byte { Alice, // Alice = 0 Bob // Bob = 1 } static int[] solve(int a0, int a1, int a2, int b0, int b1, int b2){ // Complete this function int[] alice = {a0, a1, a2}; int[] bob = {b0, b1, b2}; int[] result = {0,0}; for(int i=0; i<3; i++){ if(alice[i] > bob[i]){ result[(int)Names.Alice]++; } else if(alice[i] < bob[i]) result[(int)Names.Bob]++; } return result;

therealrishabhs1 + 1 comment Over here why have you multiplied the brackets by 1.I mean does this signify anything?

jonsultana + 1 comment I know this is late but in C++ booleans are defined as 0 or 1. In C++ you can write a conditional statement like if(0){ {// The condition is false} if(1){// the condition is true.} As (a1 > b1) stands is a boolean but by multiplying my 1 will cast the result to a int.

sibeldeshong + 0 comments Even later but so couldn't you also just explicitly cast them to int instead. I'm new to C++ but I believe it is done by writing static_cast(a0 > b0) right?

Rainchai4240 + 0 comments wouldnt that be better to use loop instead of repeat the code? Just a suggestion

gameplace123 + 4 comments I'm sure there's a much better way to do this with Python 2, but this is what I got

a = [int(x) for x in raw_input().split()] b = [int(x) for x in raw_input().split()] print sum([1 for x in range(3) if a[x] > b[x]]), sum([1 for x in range(3) if a[x] < b[x]])

kedarj14 + 5 comments A = list(map(int, raw_input().strip().split())) B = list(map(int, raw_input().strip().split())) Ascore = len([1 for a,b in zip(A,B) if a>b]) Bscore = len([1 for a,b in zip(A,B) if b>a]) print Ascore, Bscore

Above code will work for any length of vector. You can use sum instead of len as well.

malanglove + 0 comments Ascore = sum(a>b for a, b in zip(A, B))

should work as well.

shBomberman + 1 comment Although the solution is nice, a question that comes to mind is how fast does the code above run for larger values of n compared to just the traditional single for loop pass, iterating through both lists at once - considering that you are given the initial size of the lists.

bryce_paul_guin1 + 0 comments Iterating through a loop twice and having one check versus iterting through a loop once and having two checks is still ~2n

msambitkumar1991 + 0 comments @kedarj14 well perfect code. But how to justify the code in terms of time complexity? Is this the most optimum code?

bryce_paul_guin1 + 0 comments I can't decide if I like aggregating the lines together better or not.

import sys lines = (line.rstrip().split(' ') for line in sys.stdin) pairs = zip(*((int(elem) for elem in line) for line in lines)) cols = zip(*((a>b, a<b) for a,b in pairs)) print(' '.join(str(sum(col)) for col in cols))

print(sum(1 for x in range(len(a)) if a[x] > b[x]), sum(1 for x in range(len(b)) if b[x] > a[x]))

Jlookup + 1 comment New to Python 3. Just learned about list comprehensions so I'm using them everywhere. Feedback please.

a = [int(x) for x in input().strip().split(' ')] b = [int(x) for x in input().strip().split(' ')] # 1 is a point for Alice, -1 a point for Bob score = [1 if x > y else 0 if x == y else -1 for x, y in zip(a, b)] print (score.count(1), score.count(-1))

edit: replaced sum() with .count

robipolli + 1 comment Nice but you're iterating 3 times:

- zip, count, count

A classical solution could be faster

In [7]: def f1(a,b): ...: score = [1 if x > y else 0 if x == y else -1 for x, y in zip(a, b)] ...: ...: (score.count(1), score.count(-1)) ...: In [8]: %timeit f1(a,b) 100000 loops, best of 3: 13.4 Âµs per loop In [11]: def f2(a,b): ...: s1,s2=0,0 ...: for x,y in zip(a,b): ...: if x>y: s1 += 1 ...: elif y<x: s2+= 1 ...: ...: In [12]: %timeit f2(a,b) 100000 loops, best of 3: 9.18 Âµs per loop

vrx_ftw + 1 comment For Javascript, try not to overthink this. It's beginner so for loop, if...else if, comparisons, will do.

function compareTriplets(a, b) { let scoreA = 0; let scoreB = 0; for (let i=0;i<3;i++) { if (a[i] > b[i]) { scoreA = scoreA + 1; } else if (a[i] < b[i]) { scoreB = scoreB + 1; } } return [scoreA, scoreB] }

paladintakeo + 0 comments Same logic here but just a little feedback : your solution does not work if the array has more elements. Here is my proposal :

`let aliceScore = 0; let bobScore = 0; for (let i = 0; i < a.length; i++){ if (a[i] > b[i]) aliceScore++; if (a[i] < b[i]) bobScore++; } return [aliceScore, bobScore]`
