# 412. Fizz Buzz

Reference: LeetCode

Difficulty: Easy

## Problem

Write a program that outputs the string representation of numbers from

`1`

to`n`

.

But for multiples of three it should output

`"Fizz"`

instead of the number and for the multiples of five output`"Buzz"`

. For numbers which are multiples of both three and five output`"FizzBuzz"`

.

**Example:**

1 | n = 15, |

## Analysis

### Brute-Force

1 | public List<String> fizzBuzz(int n) { |

**Time:** $O(N)$**Space:** $O(1)$

### String Concatenation

If a new requirement is that if the number is divisible by `7`

, we would add more `if`

s. A better way of doing this is to use string concatenation.

- Divisible by 3
- Divisible by 5
- Divisible by 7
- Divisible by 3 and 5
- Divisible by 3 and 7
- Divisible by 7 and 3
- Divisible by 3 and 5 and 7
- Not divisible by 3 or 5 or 7.

**Note:** String to Integer -> Use `String.valueOf()`

or `Integer.toString()`

1 | public List<String> fizzBuzz(int n) { |

**Time:** $O(N)$**Space:** $O(1)$

### Hash It!

Reference: LeetCode Solution

This approach is an optimization over approach 2. When the number of mappings are limited, approach 2 looks good. But what if you face a tricky interviewer and he decides to add too many mappings?

Having a condition for every mapping is not feasible or may be we can say the code might get ugly and tough to maintain.

**Note:** Learn that a collection object can be initialized in this way.

1 | public List<String> fizzBuzz(int n) { |

**Time:** $O(N)$**Space:** $O(1)$
