[LeetCode]#1295. Find Numbers with Even Number of Digits

Environment: Python 3.7

Key technique: for loop

Given an array nums of integers, return how many of them contain an even number of digits.

Example 1:

Input: nums = [12,345,2,6,7896]
Output: 2
Explanation:
12 contains 2 digits (even number of digits).
345 contains 3 digits (odd number of digits).
2 contains 1 digit (odd number of digits).
6 contains 1 digit (odd number of digits).
7896 contains 4 digits (even number of digits).
Therefore only 12 and 7896 contain an even number of digits.

Example 2:

Input: nums = [555,901,482,1771]
Output: 1
Explanation:
Only 1771 contains an even number of digits.

Constraints:

  • 1 <= nums.length <= 500
  • 1 <= nums[i] <= 10^5

Analysis:

  1. Convert int to string.
  2. Use len() function to find is even number or not.

Solution:

class Solution:
def findNumbers(self, nums):
count=0
for i in nums:
if len(str(i))%2==0:
count+=1
return count

Better Solution:

class Solution:
def findNumbers(self, nums):
return sum([len(str(x))%2==0 for x in nums])

Submitted result:
