We define the following terms:
Lexicographical Order, also known as alphabetic or dictionary order, orders characters as follows:
ball < cat,
dog < dorm,
Happy < happy,
Zoo < ball.
- A substring of a string is a contiguous block of characters in the string. For example, the substrings of
Given a string, , and an integer, , complete the function so that it finds the lexicographically smallest and largest substrings of length .
Complete the getSmallestAndLargest function in the editor below.
getSmallestAndLargest has the following parameters:
- string s: a string
- int k: the length of the substrings to find
- string: the string ' + "\n" + ' where and are the two substrings
The first line contains a string denoting .
The second line contains an integer denoting .
- consists of English alphabetic letters only (i.e.,
Sample Input 0
Sample Output 0
String has the following lexicographically-ordered substrings of length :
We then return the first (lexicographically smallest) substring and the last (lexicographically largest) substring as two newline-separated values (i.e.,
The stub code in the editor then prints
ava as our first line of output and
wel as our second line of output.
