Java Question

I am working on the LeetCode question No.69 named sqrt(x)(https://leetcode.com/problems/sqrtx/). It asked me to return the square root of the integer also in another integer. Below is my solution.

`public class Solution {`

public int mySqrt(int x) {

int i = 0;

if(x==0)

{

return 0;

}

for(i = 1;i<x/2;i++)

{

if(((i*i)<=x)&&((i+1)*(i+1)>x))

{

break;

}

}

return i;

}

}

After I submit the code, all the test cases where x >= 2147395600 are all failed. When x = 2147395600, it is returning a 289398 instead of 46340, which is the right answer. What is the problem with my code?

Answer

You can try my code:

```
public int mySqrt(int x) {
long i = 0;
long j = x;
int mid = 0;
if (x == 0) {
return 0;
}
if (x == 1) {
return 1;
}
while (i <= j) {
mid = (int)(i + j)/2;
if (x/mid == mid) {
return (int)mid;
} else if (x/mid > mid) {
i = mid + 1;
} else if (x/mid < mid) {
j = mid - 1;
}
}
return (int)j;
}
```
