Hackerrank - Arrays: Left Rotation Solution

A left rotation operation on an array shifts each of the array's elements  unit to the left. For example, if  left rotations are performed on array , then the array would become .

Given an array  of  integers and a number, , perform  left rotations on the array. Return the updated array to be printed as a single line of space-separated integers.

Function Description

Complete the function rotLeft in the editor below. It should return the resulting array of integers.

rotLeft has the following parameter(s):

  • An array of integers .
  • An integer , the number of rotations.

Input Format

The first line contains two space-separated integers  and , the size of  and the number of left rotations you must perform.
The second line contains  space-separated integers .


Output Format

Print a single line of  space-separated integers denoting the final state of the array after performing  left rotations.

Sample Input

5 4
1 2 3 4 5

Sample Output

5 1 2 3 4


When we perform  left rotations, the array undergoes the following sequence of changes:

Solution in Python

def rotLeft(a, d):
    d = d%len(a)
    a = a[d:]+a[:d]
    return a

n,d = map(int,input().split())
a = list(map(int,input().split()))
print(*rotLeft(a, d))
