Description

Given an array of meeting time intervals where intervals[i] = [starti, endi], determine if a person could attend all meetings.

Input: intervals = [[0,30],[5,10],[15,20]]
Output: false
Input: intervals = [[7,10],[2,4]]
Output: true
  • intervals[i].length == 2
  • 0 <= starti < endi <= 106

Solution

I came up with a brute force solution when I had seen this question the first time. We can go through the intervals array and create a Set with all busy minutes. And if we see a minute that is already in Set we’re going to return false, otherwise return true.
