C++ O(n) solution in three lines

  • 1
    class Solution {
        int majorityElement(vector<int>& nums) {
            vector<int>::iterator mid = nums.begin() + nums.size()/2;
            nth_element(nums.begin(), mid, nums.end());
            return (*mid);

    note that nth_element is in <algorithm> and runs in O(n) time.
