# [Solved] Given an array nums of size n, return the majority element. The majority element is the element that appears more than ⌊n / 2⌋ times. You may assume that the majority element always exists in the array.

## Question

Given an array `nums` of size `n`, return the majority element.

The majority element is the element that appears more than `⌊n / 2⌋` times. You may assume that the majority element always exists in the array.

Example 1:

```Input: nums = [3,2,3]
Output: 3
```

Example 2:

```Input: nums = [2,2,1,1,1,2,2]
Output: 2
```

Constraints:

• `n == nums.length`
• `1 <= n <= 5 * 104`
• `-109 <= nums[i] <= 109`

Follow-up: Could you solve the problem in linear time and in `O(1)` space?

## Python Solution

```class Solution:
def majorityElement(self, nums: List[int]) -> int:
nums.sort()
return nums[len(nums)//2]``` ##### Abhishek Sharma
