Greater than 10? You're not a good fit for us

  • 10
  • Locked
The Oddiozo transshipment center is looking for employees. The only requirement is this: employees must not have more than ten limbs (we don't know where this form of discrimination came from). We'll help them with a program that will create a set of numbers (Set ), add 20 different numbers, and then remove from the set all the numbers greater than 10.

Try Collection.removeif() method or through Iteretor.

wow, this was a super learning experience task. Found three different ways to solve this task. practiced writing it to gain familiarity. Nearly took all day, but it was worth it. Happy coding! :)

set.removeIf(n -> (n > 10));

set.removeAll came in super handy here

Enhanced for loop in the second one, had two create an additional Set but it worked.

why is it when u call iterator, to remove the element you call it. remove instead of set.remove(it) as according to hash set java API???

I got this right using the removeIf method in the Set class. we haven't been taught that here, but I stumbled across it while reading some time ago and was itching to try it. for what we have been taught though, just: 1. create an iterator object to go through the set (a set doesn't have index numbers so there is no .get() method. 2. run the interation as long as there is another number in the set (.hasNext()) 3. if statement that removes numbers larger than 10, called by the iterator. cheers! :)

Have you also tried using iterator.remove(); ? I tried doing your way but I did not understand (from my research) how to use removeIf() function so I did it with remove.

I'm very confused about the usage of HashSet vs Set. In the given examples I encounter Set<String> set = new HashSet<String>(); but in the task above it gives an error with the return statement. When I changed this into: HashSet<String> set = new HashSet<String>(); it worked. I'm so confused. What is the difference? And why give examples if they do not work? Can anybody shed some light on this matter? Very much appreciated!

Hello! I have stumbled upon the same thing. Have you found any explanation for this? Thanks! :)

Can I assume that a solution for removeAllNumbersGreaterThan10() - first, iterate through the set and set all numbers > 10 to a separate array then iterate through the array removing the set elements WITH NO CONCURRENCY issues fails the requirement is because of Time complexity? Not sure if Iteration<Integer> introduces a savings of Space complexity, but an extra for loop does NOT increase performance much beyond O(n). Can you explain what I am missing in why this solution is not allowed to pass? Please advise.
