In this lab, you will implement a function to assign cookies to children based on their greed factor. You are an awesome parent and want to give your children some cookies. But, you should give each child at most one cookie.

Each child i has a greed factor g[i], which is the minimum size of a cookie that the child will be content with; and each cookie j has a size s[j]. If s[j] >= g[i], we can assign the cookie j to the child i, and the child i will be content. Your goal is to maximize the number of your content children and output the maximum number.

Function Signature:

/** * @param {number[]} g * @param {number[]} s * @return {number} */ var findContentChildren = function(g, s) { };

Example 1:

Input: g = [1,2,3], s = [1,1]
Output: 1
Explanation: You have 3 children and 2 cookies. The greed factors of 3 children are 1, 2, 3. And even though you have 2 cookies, since their size is both 1, you could only make the child whose greed factor is 1 content. You need to output 1.

Example 2:

Input: g = [1,2], s = [1,2,3]
Output: 2
Explanation: You have 2 children and 3 cookies. The greed factors of 2 children are 1, 2. You have 3 cookies and their sizes are big enough to gratify all of the children, You need to output 2.

Example 3:

Input: g = [10,9,8], s = [5,6,7]
Output: 0
Explanation: You have 3 children and their greed factors are 10, 9, and 8. However, you only have 3 cookies with sizes 5, 6, and 7. None of the cookies are large enough to satisfy any of the children. You need to output 0.

Constraints:

  • 1 <= g.length <= 3 * 104
  • 0 <= s.length <= 3 * 104
  • 1 <= g[i], s[j] <= 231 - 1

Challenges

  1. Export the function findContentChildren from index.js and make sure it follows the function signature mentioned above.
  2. Implement the logic for findContentChildren function to solve the problem as described earlier.
  3. Test the function with various inputs and make sure it gives the correct outputs, including edge cases.

Remember to carefully follow the given instructions, and always export any required code.
