Problem statement:-

Problem statement with example

A very straight forward hackerrank problem where we have to find the count of triplet form based on condition given in the problem statement.

In one of the approach we could use 3 for loops but it will create problem for huge array and thus hamper the execution time and degrade the time complexity. Let’s move towards the code.

def beautifulTriplets(d, arr):
for i in range(len(arr)):
if j in arr and j+d in arr:
return count

We will first declare a variable which will count the number of triplets say count and initialize it to 0.The we will iterate each element in the list and add “d” to it and store it in “j” and check if the sum is present in the list if so the first condition i.e arr[i]-arr[j]=d and then we will d to j to check for condition arr[k]-arr[j]=d.If both the conditions are staified we will increment count by one and at the end of the iteration we will return the value of count.
