Registration Method:

  • Each participant is required to submit a solution to the Sums Problem below. Each team member must submit an application.

    Sums Problem
    Given an array of integers, return the smallest set of indices of numbers such that they add up to a target number. You may not use the same element twice.

    [1,2,6,3,17,82,23,234] -> 26
    Solution [3,6]

    [1,2,6,3,17,82,23,234] -> 40
    Solution [4,6]

    [1,2,6,3,17,82,23,234] -> 23
    Solution [6]

    This is not your standard coding kata. You are expected to:
    ▪ Complete the task in a single class/function
    ▪ Solve from first principles
    ▪ It needs to be human legible i.e. this is not a challenge to solve in the least amount of code/characters possible
    ▪ Write down all assumptions and limits that you have made (they have not been provided for a reason)
    ▪ Note down the methodology(ies) used to solve the problem
    ▪ You can submit more than 1 solution – one naïve and one more elaborate as a possibility
    ▪ You can use Java, Kotlin, C#, Javascript, Ruby, Python, C/C++, Clojure


Winning teams / individuals will be awarded with prizes that are worth of the below values.
