# Hackerrank - Flatland Space Stations

Flatland is a country with a number of cities, some of which have space stations. Cities are numbered consecutively and each has a road of length connecting it to the next city. It is not a circular route, so the first city doesn't connect with the last city. Determine the maximum distance from any city to it's nearest space station.

For example, there are cities and of them has a space station, city . They occur consecutively along a route. City is unit away and city is units away. City is units from its nearest space station as one is located there. The maximum distance is .

**Function Description**

Complete the *flatlandSpaceStations* function in the editor below. It should return an integer that represents the maximum distance any city is from a space station.

flatlandSpaceStations has the following parameter(s):

*n*: the number of cities*c*: an integer array that contains the indices of cities with a space station, -based indexing

**Input Format**

The first line consists of two space-separated integers, and .

The second line contains space-separated integers, the indices of each city having a space-station. These values are *unordered* and unique.

**Constraints**

- There will be at least city with a space station.
- No city has more than one space station.

**Output Format**

Print an integer denoting the maximum distance that an astronaut in a Flatland city would need to travel to reach the nearest space station.

**Sample Input 0**

```
5 2
0 4
```

**Sample Output 0**

```
2
```

**Explanation 0**

This sample corresponds to following graphic:

The distance to the nearest space station for each city is listed below:

- has distance , as it contains a space station.
- has distance to the space station in .
- has distance to the space stations in and .
- has distance to the space station in .
- has distance , as it contains a space station.

We then take .

**Sample Input 1**

```
6 6
0 1 2 4 3 5
```

**Sample Output 1**

```
0
```

**Explanation 1**

In this sample, so every city has space station and we print as our answer.

### Solution in Python

```
import math
n,m = map(int,input().split())
c= sorted(map(int,input().split()))
m = max(n-c[-1]-1,c[0]-0)
for i in range(1,len(c)):
d = math.floor((c[i]-c[i-1])/2)
if d>m:
m=d
print(m)
```

*Solution using max, list comprehension and list concatenation*

```
from math import floor
n,m = map(int,input().split())
c = sorted(map(int,input().split()))
print(max([floor((c[i]-c[i-1])/2) for i in range(1,len(c))]+[n-c[-1]-1, c[0]-0]))
```

*Additional Info*

The following gives us nearest mid point between two space station

```
import math
math.floor((c[i]-c[i-1])/2)
```

Distance between first city and the first space station

`c[0]-0`

Distance between last city and the last space station

`n-c[-1]-1`
