Given a non-negative number find the cube root of a number using the binary search approach.
Input: x = 27 Output: 3 Explanation: The cube root of 16 is 4. Input: x = 120 Output: 4 Explanation: The cube root of 120 lies in between 4 and 5 so floor of the cube root is 4.
- Check the cube of every element till n and store the answer till the cube is smaller or equal to the n
SpaceComplexity: O(1) TimeComplexity: O(n)
Efficient Approach (Binary Search):
Binary Search used Divide and Conquer approach that makes the complexity is O(log n).
- Initialize left=0 and right =n
- Calculate mid=left+(right-left)/2
- If mid*mid*mid is equal to the number return the mid
- If mid*mid*mid is less than the number store the mid in ans and increase left=mid+1
- If mid*mid*mid is more than the number and decrease the right=mid-1
- Return the answer
SpaceComplexity: O(1) TimeComplexity: O(log n)
