# Get Node Value

### Problem Statement :

```This challenge is part of a tutorial track by MyCodeSchool

Given a pointer to the head of a linked list and a specific position, determine the data value at that position. Count backwards from the tail node. The tail is at postion 0, its parent is at 1 and so on.

Example
head refers to  3 -> 2 -> 1 -> 0 -> NULL
positionFromTail = 2

Each of the data values matches its distance from the tail. The value 2 is at the desired position.

Complete the getNode function in the editor below.

getNode has the following parameters:

int positionFromTail: the item to retrieve
Returns

int: the value at the desired position
Input Format

The first line contains an integer t, the number of test cases.

Each test case has the following format:
The first line contains an integer n, the number of elements in the linked list.
The next n lines contains an integer, the data value for an element of the linked list.
The last line contains an integer positionFromTail, the position from the tail to retrieve the value of.

Function Description```

### Solution :

```                            ```Solution in C :

In C++ :

/*
Get Nth element from the end in a linked list of integers
Number of elements in the list will always be greater than N.
Node is defined as
struct Node
{
int data;
struct Node *next;
}
*/
{
// This is a "method-only" submission.
// You only need to complete this method.

int count = 0;

while(ptr!=NULL)
{
++count;
ptr=ptr->next;
}

count = count-positionFromTail;

--count;

while(count!=0)
{
--count;
ptr=ptr->next;
}

return ptr->data;
}

In python3 :

nums = []

# First find tail of list as length is unknown
while current != None:
nums.append(current.data)
current = current.next

# Return value of item at given position
return nums[ len( nums ) - position - 1 ]

In java :

/*
Insert Node at the end of a linked list
head pointer input could be NULL as well for empty list
Node is defined as
class Node {
int data;
Node next;
}
*/

// This is a "method-only" submission.
// You only need to complete this method.

int count=0;
while(temp!=null)
{
count++;
temp=temp.next;
}

int k=count-n-1;
while(k>0)
{

k--;
temp=temp.next;
}
return temp.data;

}

In C :

// Complete the getNode function below.

/*
*
*     int data;
* };
*
*/
int c = 1, i = 1;
while(ptr->next != NULL){
c += 1;
ptr = ptr->next;
}
if(positionFromTail == 0)
return ptr->data;
c = c - positionFromTail;
while(i != c){
ptr = ptr->next;
i += 1;
}
return ptr->data;
}```
```

The median M of numbers is defined as the middle number after sorting them in order if M is odd. Or it is the average of the middle two numbers if M is even. You start with an empty number list. Then, you can add numbers to the list, or remove existing numbers from it. After each add or remove operation, output the median. Input: The first line is an integer, N , that indicates the number o

You have an empty sequence, and you will be given N queries. Each query is one of these three types: 1 x -Push the element x into the stack. 2 -Delete the element present at the top of the stack. 3 -Print the maximum element in the stack. Input Format The first line of input contains an integer, N . The next N lines each contain an above mentioned query. (It is guaranteed that each

## Balanced Brackets

A bracket is considered to be any one of the following characters: (, ), {, }, [, or ]. Two brackets are considered to be a matched pair if the an opening bracket (i.e., (, [, or {) occurs to the left of a closing bracket (i.e., ), ], or }) of the exact same type. There are three types of matched pairs of brackets: [], {}, and (). A matching pair of brackets is not balanced if the set of bra

## Equal Stacks

ou have three stacks of cylinders where each cylinder has the same diameter, but they may vary in height. You can change the height of a stack by removing and discarding its topmost cylinder any number of times. Find the maximum possible height of the stacks such that all of the stacks are exactly the same height. This means you must remove zero or more cylinders from the top of zero or more of

## Game of Two Stacks

Alexa has two stacks of non-negative integers, stack A = [a0, a1, . . . , an-1 ] and stack B = [b0, b1, . . . , b m-1] where index 0 denotes the top of the stack. Alexa challenges Nick to play the following game: In each move, Nick can remove one integer from the top of either stack A or stack B. Nick keeps a running sum of the integers he removes from the two stacks. Nick is disqualified f
