# EquiLeader – Codility – Solution

Java solution to Codility EquiLeader problem (Lesson 8 – Leader) which scored 100%. The problem is to find the two adjoining sub-arrays with the same integer occurring in more than half the elements of each sub-array.

The strategy is:

• find the dominator of entire array with the same code as from the Dominator problem If no Dominator, no equi leaders can exist.
• keep running count of occurrences of dominator at each array index. That way, can calculate if there’s an equi leader pair at every index in given array.
```

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;
import java.util.Stack;

public int solution(int[] A) {
Stack stack = new Stack();

for(int i=0; i<A.length; i++) {
if(stack.isEmpty()) {
stack.push(A[i]);
}
else {
if(stack.peek().intValue() == A[i]) {
stack.push(A[i]);
}
else {
stack.pop();
}
}
}
//no equi leaders if stack is empty
if(stack.isEmpty()) return 0;
int candidate = stack.peek().intValue();
int dominatorCount = 0;

Map<Integer, Integer> dominatorMap = new HashMap<Integer, Integer>();
for(int i=0; i<A.length; i++) { if(A[i] == candidate) { dominatorCount++; dominatorMap.put(i, dominatorCount); } } //works for even and odd number of A elements //e.g. if A.length = 4, count needs to be > 2
//e.g. if A.length = 5, count needs to be > 2
if(dominatorCount > (A.length / 2)) {

int lastCandidateOccurenceIndex = 0;
int runningDominatorCount = 0;
for(int i=0; i<A.length-1; i++) { if(A[i] == candidate) { lastCandidateOccurenceIndex = i; runningDominatorCount = dominatorMap.get(i).intValue(); } else if(dominatorMap.get(lastCandidateOccurenceIndex) != null) { runningDominatorCount = dominatorMap.get(lastCandidateOccurenceIndex).intValue(); } if(runningDominatorCount > (i+1)/2) {
if((dominatorCount - runningDominatorCount) > (A.length - (i+1))/2 ) {
}
}
}
}
}
}
