Round 1: HackerRank Test Online

Q1. Given 2 coordinates as an excel sheet cell number like (2, AA), return true or false whether the line formed between the two points will pass through the origin.


1, AA

2, AB


Explanation : 1, AA => 1, 27 and 2, AB => 2, 28 .

The line between (1, 27) and (2, 28) will not pass through origin.


Q2. Given a string, calculate number of indexes such that the substring to left of the index and the substring to the right of the index contains characters that can form the string “programmer” .
