Day 14: Scope(30 Days of Code)


Complete the Difference class by writing the following:

  • A class constructor that takes an array of integers as a parameter and saves it to the __elements instance variable.
  • computeDifference method that finds the maximum absolute difference between any 2 numbers in __elements and stores it in the maximumDifference instance variable.

Input Format

You are not responsible for reading any input from stdin. The locked Solution class in the editor reads in 2 lines of input. The first line contains N, the size of the elements array. The second line has 2 space-separated integers that describe the __elements array.

Output Format

You are not responsible for printing any output; the Solution class will print the value of the maximumDifference instance variable.

Sample Input

STDIN   Function 
-----   -------- 
3      __elements[] size N = 3 
1 2 5   __elements = [1, 2, 5]
