1. ### A few guidelines as we start… Make sure you’re muted

Turn on your webcam! Feel free to talk in the room chat

3. ### Common interview mistakes: • not verbalizing thought process • jumping

to conclusions / solving the wrong problem • not communicating with interviewer

13. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14}
14. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Understand:
15. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Understand:   - is the input always sorted for us?
16. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Understand:   - is the input always sorted for us?  - are inputs always only integers?
17. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Understand:   - is the input always sorted for us?  - are inputs always only integers? - Given {1, 1, 1} ; Return {1}  - Given {1, 2, 3} ; Return {1, 2, 3}  - Given {15, 6, 10, 5, 12, 6} ; Return {15, 6, 10, 5, 12}
18. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Understand:   - is the input always sorted for us?  - are inputs always only integers? - Given {1, 1, 1} ; Return {1}  - Given {1, 2, 3} ; Return {1, 2, 3}  - Given {15, 6, 10, 5, 12, 6} ; Return {15, 6, 10, 5, 12} Follow up question: does it matter what order our return list is?
19. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Match:
20. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Match:   - are there any common patterns we can apply here?
21. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Match:   - are there any common patterns we can apply here?  - coming in future sessions..  - hash table  - sort input ﬁrst?
22. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Plan
23. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Plan:   - possible solutions:  (1) iterate through array, put values in hash table, if value already exists, don't add to numsToReturn
24. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Plan:   - possible solutions:  (1) iterate through array, put values in hash table, if value already exists, don't add to numsToReturn  (2) sort array, add integer to numsToReturn if previous integer is not the same
25. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Implement: code up solution in https://codebunk.com/ !
26. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Review: run one or two inputs through our solution
27. ### Return distinct values from a list including duplicates Given {1,

2, 6, 6, 6, 10, 14, 14} ; Return -> {1, 2, 6, 10, 14} Evaluate: what’s the space / run time complexity of our solution? what tradeoffs did we have to make?
