# Need to add some test case of 3sum closest.

• I initialize the variable closet which is used to store the closet value as Integer.MAX_VALUE / 2. This code was accepted.

However I think if there is a test case which the target value is Integer.MAX_VALUE / 2 and all the combination of three number's sum is bigger or smaller than Integer.MAX_VALUE / 2, this code will return Integer.MAX_VALUE / 2 which is wrong. The right way to initialize the variable closet is using the value in the num[] like num[0] + num[1] + num[2].

Also in the 3sum and 4sum should we have some overflow test case?

``````public class Solution {
public int threeSumClosest(int[] num, int target) {
if (num == null || num.length < 3) {
return Integer.MAX_VALUE;
}
Arrays.sort(num);
int closet = Integer.MAX_VALUE / 2; // otherwise it will overflow for opeartion (closet-target)'
for (int i = 0; i < num.length - 2; i++) {
int left = i + 1;
int right = num.length - 1;
while (left < right) {
int sum = num[i] + num[left] + num[right];
if (sum == target) {
return sum;
} else if (sum < target) {
left++;
} else {
right--;
}
closet = Math.abs(sum - target) < Math.abs(closet - target) ? sum : closet;
}
}
return closet;
}
}``````
