Sum each row and column and check if any of the row or column has total sum of +3 or -3, you have a winner. Additionally, check for the downward diagonal and the upward diagonal sum if any of them has total sum of +3 or -3. e. there can only be one winner. size() == 3); for (int i = 0; i < 3; ++i) { const auto rowSum = board[i][0] + board[i][1] + board[i][2]; const auto colSum = board[0][i] + board[1][i] + board[2][i]; if (rowSum == 3 || colSum == 3) { return Player::White; } if (rowSum == -3 || colSum == -3) { return Player::Black; } } int downDiagonalSum = board[0][0] + board[1][1] + board[2][2]; if (downDiagonalSum == 3) return Player::White; else if (downDiagonalSum == -3) return Player::Black; int upDiagonalSum = board[2][0] + board[1][1] + board[0][2]; if (upDiagonalSum == 3) return Player::White; else if (upDiagonalSum == -3) return Player::Black; return Player::None; } Below is the solution for the NxN board dimension.

When it processes the left subtree, the inorder recursion will traverse the list from left to right in the same exact order that makes it possible to do this in O(n) complexity since every node will get visited exactly once and the process complete when it visits all the nodes. struct Node { Node(int n) : value(n), left(nullptr), right(nullptr) {} int value; Node* left, *right; Node* next; }; Node* CreateBST(Node*& head, int s, int e) { if (s > e) return nullptr; int m = s + (e - s) / 2; // Process left subtree auto left = CreateBST(head, s, m - 1); // Process current node and set node->left to the processed // left subtree Node* node = new Node(head->value); node->left = left; // Advance the list pointer by one head = head->next; // Process the right subtree node->right = CreateBST(head, m + 1, e); return node; } Print Level Order (Binary Tree) Problem Given a binary tree, print the nodes values in level order from left to right and level by level.

Hence for n words, the complexity is O(n k log k). Can you think a solution that can give us a better complexity under O(nk log k). HINTS: O(nk). Chapter 3: Problems & Solutions Reverse Singly (Linked List) Problem Given a singly Linked List, reverse the next pointer to point to the previous node and return the new head that points to the tail of the original Linked List.
