Financial Software Developer Interview(Student Candidate)

You are given a linked list that originally had numbers

  1-100. One number is missing. How do you find the missing number?

Interview Answer

1 Answer


Classic, sum all the numbers in the list and deduct from the sum of numbers 1..100. Runtime O(N), space O(1).

There is even a formula to calculate the expected sum - summation of arithmetic series, S=100*(100+1)/2=5050.
