**Log Truncation - Google Top Interview Questions**

### Problem Statement :

You are given a list of integers logs and an integer limit. Each element in logs[i] represents the size of logs generated by user i. limit represents the total size of logs you can store in your system. Return the largest x such that if we truncate every log in logs to be at most size x, the sum of the remaining log sizes is at most limit. If no log needs to be truncated, return the largest log size. Constraints 1 ≤ n ≤ 100,000 where n is the length of logs 1 ≤ limit < 2 ** 31 Example 1 Input logs = [50, 20, 1000, 50, 400] limit = 300 Output 90 Explanation If we truncate logs to 90, then we get [50, 20, 90, 50, 90] and its sum is 300 Example 2 Input logs = [2, 3, 7] limit = 100 Output 7 Explanation No message needs to be truncated, so we return the max log size.

### Solution :

` ````
Solution in C++ :
int solve(vector<int>& logs, int limit) {
int n = logs.size();
int low = 0, high = *max_element(begin(logs), end(logs));
auto check = [&](int mid) {
int sum = 0;
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
sum += (logs[i] <= mid ? logs[i] : mid);
}
return sum <= limit;
};
while (low <= high) {
int mid = (low + high) / 2;
if (check(mid)) {
low = mid + 1;
} else {
high = mid - 1;
}
}
return high;
}
```

` ````
Solution in Python :
class Solution:
def solve(self, logs, limit):
s, n = 0, len(logs)
for i, x in enumerate(sorted(logs)):
if s + x * (n - i) >= limit:
return (limit - s) // (n - i)
s += x
return max(logs)
```

## Tree : Top View

Given a pointer to the root of a binary tree, print the top view of the binary tree. The tree as seen from the top the nodes, is called the top view of the tree. For example : 1 \ 2 \ 5 / \ 3 6 \ 4 Top View : 1 -> 2 -> 5 -> 6 Complete the function topView and print the resulting values on a single line separated by space.

Given a pointer to the root of a binary tree, you need to print the level order traversal of this tree. In level-order traversal, nodes are visited level by level from left to right. Complete the function levelOrder and print the values in a single line separated by a space. For example: 1 \ 2 \ 5 / \ 3 6 \ 4 F

You are given a pointer to the root of a binary search tree and values to be inserted into the tree. Insert the values into their appropriate position in the binary search tree and return the root of the updated binary tree. You just have to complete the function. Input Format You are given a function, Node * insert (Node * root ,int data) { } Constraints No. of nodes in the tree <

View Solution →## Tree: Huffman Decoding

Huffman coding assigns variable length codewords to fixed length input characters based on their frequencies. More frequent characters are assigned shorter codewords and less frequent characters are assigned longer codewords. All edges along the path to a character contain a code digit. If they are on the left side of the tree, they will be a 0 (zero). If on the right, they'll be a 1 (one). Only t

You are given pointer to the root of the binary search tree and two values v1 and v2. You need to return the lowest common ancestor (LCA) of v1 and v2 in the binary search tree. In the diagram above, the lowest common ancestor of the nodes 4 and 6 is the node 3. Node 3 is the lowest node which has nodes and as descendants.

View Solution →## Swap Nodes [Algo]

A binary tree is a tree which is characterized by one of the following properties: It can be empty (null). It contains a root node only. It contains a root node with a left subtree, a right subtree, or both. These subtrees are also binary trees. In-order traversal is performed as Traverse the left subtree. Visit root. Traverse the right subtree. For this in-order traversal, start from
