[Solved] Given two integer arrays startTime and endTime and given an integer queryTime. The ith student started doing their homework at the time startTime[i] and finished it at time endTime[i].

Question

Given two integer arrays startTime and endTime and given an integer queryTime.

The ith student started doing their homework at the time startTime[i] and finished it at time endTime[i].

Return the number of students doing their homework at time queryTime. More formally, return the number of students where queryTime lays in the interval [startTime[i], endTime[i]] inclusive.

Example 1:

Input: startTime = [1,2,3], endTime = [3,2,7], queryTime = 4
Output: 1
Explanation: We have 3 students where:
The first student started doing homework at time 1 and finished at time 3 and wasn't doing anything at time 4.
The second student started doing homework at time 2 and finished at time 2 and also wasn't doing anything at time 4.
The third student started doing homework at time 3 and finished at time 7 and was the only student doing homework at time 4.

Example 2:

Input: startTime = [4], endTime = [4], queryTime = 4
Output: 1
Explanation: The only student was doing their homework at the queryTime.

Constraints:

  • startTime.length == endTime.length
  • 1 <= startTime.length <= 100
  • 1 <= startTime[i] <= endTime[i] <= 1000
  • 1 <= queryTime <= 1000

Python Solution

class Solution:
    def busyStudent(self, startTime: List[int], endTime: List[int], queryTime: int) -> int:
        r=0
        for s,e in zip(startTime,endTime):
            if queryTime in range(s,e+1):
                r+=1
        return (r)
