# Remove Element Leetcode Solution

In this post, you will know how to solve the Remove Element Leetcode Solution problem of Leetcode. This Leetcode problem is done in many programming languages like C++, Java, and Python.

One more thing to add, don’t directly look for the solutions, first try to solve the problems of Leetcode by yourself. If you find any difficulty after trying several times, then you can look for solutions.

## Problem

Given an integer array `nums` and an integer `val`, remove all occurrences of `val` in `nums` in-place. The relative order of the elements may be changed.

Since it is impossible to change the length of the array in some languages, you must instead have the result be placed in the first part of the array `nums`. More formally, if there are `k` elements after removing the duplicates, then the first `k` elements of `nums` should hold the final result. It does not matter what you leave beyond the first `k` elements.

Return `k` after placing the final result in the first `k` slots of `nums`.

Do not allocate extra space for another array. You must do this by modifying the input array in-place with O(1) extra memory.

Custom Judge:

The judge will test your solution with the following code:

```int[] nums = [...]; // Input array
int val = ...; // Value to remove
int[] expectedNums = [...]; // The expected answer with correct length.
// It is sorted with no values equaling val.

int k = removeElement(nums, val); // Calls your implementation

assert k == expectedNums.length;
sort(nums, 0, k); // Sort the first k elements of nums
for (int i = 0; i < actualLength; i++) {
assert nums[i] == expectedNums[i];
}
```

If all assertions pass, then your solution will be accepted.

Example 1:

```Input: nums = [3,2,2,3], val = 3
Output: 2, nums = [2,2,_,_]
Explanation: Your function should return k = 2, with the first two elements of nums being 2.
It does not matter what you leave beyond the returned k (hence they are underscores).
```

Example 2:

```Input: nums = [0,1,2,2,3,0,4,2], val = 2
Output: 5, nums = [0,1,4,0,3,_,_,_]
Explanation: Your function should return k = 5, with the first five elements of nums containing 0, 0, 1, 3, and 4.
Note that the five elements can be returned in any order.
It does not matter what you leave beyond the returned k (hence they are underscores).
```

Constraints:

• `0 <= nums.length <= 100`
• `0 <= nums[i] <= 50`
• `0 <= val <= 100`

### Remove Element Leetcode Solutions in Python

```class Solution:
def removeElement(self, nums: List[int], val: int) -> int:
i = 0
for num in nums:
if num != val:
nums[i] = num
i += 1
return i
```

### Remove Element Leetcode Solutions in CPP

```class Solution {
public:
int removeElement(vector<int>& nums, int val) {
int i = 0;
for (const int num : nums)
if (num != val)
nums[i++] = num;
return i;
}
};
```

### Remove Element Leetcode Solutions in Java

```class Solution {
public int removeElement(int[] nums, int val) {
int i = 0;
for (final int num : nums)
if (num != val)
nums[i++] = num;
return i;
}
}
```
