# MissingInteger – Codility – Solution

Java solution to Codility MissingInteger problem (Lesson 4 – Counting Elements) which scored 100%. The problem is to find the smallest positive integer that does not occur in a given array. The main strategy is to use two java.util.TreeSets, which order their elements:  1) a perfect set and 2) the actual set and check for the missing element in the actual set that exists in the perfect set.

import java.util.Set;
import java.util.TreeSet;

public class MissingInteger {
public int solution(int[] A) {
Set testedSet = new TreeSet();
Set perfectSet = new TreeSet();

for(int i=0; i<A.length; i++) {
testedSet.add(A[i]);   //convert array to set to get rid of duplicates, order int's
perfectSet.add(i+1);  //create perfect set so can find missing int
}

for(int current : perfectSet) {
if(!testedSet.contains(current)) {
return current;
}
}

if(perfectSet.size() == testedSet.size()) {
return perfectSet.size() + 1;  //e.g. {1, 2, 3} should return 4
}

return 1; //default - e.g. if A array has negative values or just a single positive value like 10
}
}
