## [Leetcode]33. Search in Rotated Sorted Array

You are given an integer array nums sorted in ascending order, and an integer target.
Suppose that nums is rotated at some pivot unknown to you beforehand (i.e., [0,1,2,4,5,6,7]might become [4,5,6,7,0,1,2]).
If target is found in the array return its index, otherwise, return -1.

## [Leetcode]1508. Range Sum of Sorted Subarray Sums

Given the array nums consisting of n positive integers. You computed the sum of all non-empty continous subarrays from the array and then sort them in non-decreasing order, creating a new array of n * (n + 1) / 2 numbers.
Return the sum of the numbers from index left to index right (indexed from 1), inclusive, in the new array. Since the answer can be a huge number return it modulo 10^9 + 7.

## [Leetcode]287. Find the Duplicate Number

Given an array nums containing n + 1 integers where each integer is between 1 and n (inclusive), prove that at least one duplicate number must exist. Assume that there is only one duplicate number, find the duplicate one.
Example 1:
Input: [1,3,4,2,2] Output: 2
Note:
1. You must not modify the array (assume the array is read only).
2. You must use only constant, O(1) extra space.
3. Your runtime complexity should be less than O(n2).
4. There is only one duplicate number in the array, but it could be repeated more than once.

## [Leetcode problems]1482. Minimum Number of Days to Make m Bouquets

Given an integer array bloomDay, an integer m and an integer k.
We need to make m bouquets. To make a bouquet, you need to use k adjacent flowers from the garden.
The garden consists of n flowers, the ith flower will bloom in the bloomDay[i] and then can be used in exactly one bouquet.
Return the minimum number of days you need to wait to be able to make m bouquets from the garden. If it is impossible to make m bouquets return -1.

Example 1:
Input: bloomDay = [1,10,3,10,2], m = 3, k = 1
Output: 3
Explanation: Let's see what happened in the first three days. x means flower bloomed and _ means flower didn't bloom in the garden. We need 3 bouquets each should contain 1 flower. After day 1: [x, _, _, _, _] // we can only make one bouquet. After day 2: [x, _, _, _, x] // we can only make two bouquets. After day 3: [x, _, x, _, x] // we can make 3 bouquets. The answer is 3.
