605. Can Place Flowers

You have a long flowerbed in which some of the plots are planted, and some are not. However, flowers cannot be planted in adjacent plots.

Given an integer array flowerbed containing 0's and 1's, where 0 means empty and 1 means not empty, and an integer n, return if n new flowers can be planted in the flowerbed without violating the no-adjacent-flowers rule.

 

Example 1:

Input: flowerbed = [1,0,0,0,1], n = 1
Output: true

Example 2:

Input: flowerbed = [1,0,0,0,1], n = 2
Output: false

 

Constraints:

  • 1 <= flowerbed.length <= 2 * 104
  • flowerbed[i] is 0 or 1.
  • There are no two adjacent flowers in flowerbed.
  • 0 <= n <= flowerbed.length

Rust Solution

struct Solution;

impl Solution {
    fn can_place_flowers(mut flowerbed: Vec<i32>, n: i32) -> bool {
        let m = flowerbed.len();
        let mut sum = 0;
        for i in 0..m {
            if flowerbed[i] == 0 {
                if i == 0 {
                    sum += 1;
                    flowerbed[i] = 1;
                } else {
                    if flowerbed[i - 1] == 0 {
                        sum += 1;
                        flowerbed[i] = 1;
                    }
                }
            } else {
                if i > 0 && flowerbed[i - 1] == 1 {
                    sum -= 1;
                }
            }
        }
        sum >= n
    }
}

#[test]
fn test() {
    let flowerbed: Vec<i32> = vec![1, 0, 0, 0, 1];
    assert_eq!(Solution::can_place_flowers(flowerbed, 1), true);
    let flowerbed: Vec<i32> = vec![1, 0, 0, 0, 1];
    assert_eq!(Solution::can_place_flowers(flowerbed, 2), false);
}
